  • Gitte Højstrup Christensen
The EU Border Assistance Mission in Libya (EUBAM), with the objective of supporting Libyan authorities in improving and developing the security of the country’s borders, was launched in May 2013 but suspended during the summer of 2014, because the security situation in Libya deteriorated. Therefore, the mission’s contribution was, for most parts, limited. But why did the EU Assistance Mission fail, and what, if anything, could have been done differently? In hindsight there are important lessons to be learned from the mission’s strategic shortcomings. This chapter provides a summary of the IECEU project’s assessment of the EU Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) mission, EUBAM Libya, and its contribution to the country’s overall security situation12. It takes departure in the complete deliverables of the Work Package 3, with The Libyan Review as the main source of reference.
The aim of this chapter is to outline the mission’s most significant strategic shortcomings and lessons identified, which are important in improving the effectiveness of the capabilities in EU conflict prevention.
