The European Union continuously struggles with how to prevent or respond to violent conflicts on its borders. This pressing problem illustrates a European security continuum, which interconnects internal and external security issues and transcends traditional bureaucratic and geographic boundaries – severely challenging the Union’s current capabilities as an international security provider. The urgency of improving conflict preventive and crisis management measures is particularly pertinent in Africa, where the numbers affected by conflicts across the continent are staggering. This contribution sets out to answer whether – and if so how – EU responses to African conflicts have made a meaningful contribution to preventing (further) conflict. The Union’s efforts in Libya, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Central African Republic are critically examined in a comparative case study. The data is analyzed according to new ‘standards of success’ integrating both ‘inside out’ and ‘outside in’ perspectives on conflict prevention. Thus, the analysis unpacks the dynamic interplay between the EU, its member states and institutions on the one hand and its external partners, host and target countries on the other. Empirical data was gathered by a team of researchers as part of the EU Horizon 2020-funded project: ‘Improving Effectiveness of Capabilities in EU Conflict Prevention’.
