ABSTRACT
The EU is getting more and more involved in crisis management and conflict prevention around the world, building a distinct identity by means of the Common Security and Defense Policy. Even though the defence part of the CSDP is currently underdeveloped, the security component – through the civilian and military crisis management – has established the EU as a major player in this field and forged its reputation as an honest broker. The Lisbon Treaty provides a clear legal framework for the EU to pursue a comprehensive approach drawing upon all the available instruments so as to prevent conflict and manage crises, while the new NATO Strategic Concept could make the Alliance a direct competitor in civilian crisis management. This paper looks at the specific pattern of civilian crisis management as performed by the EU and assesses its post-Lisbon perspectives.
