Working paper on implementation of EU crisis response in Iraq


In this report we perform a bottom-up analysis to uncover the impacts of the EU’s crisis response policies in Iraq. Here we focus on the implementation-information gap by examining local stakeholder’s awareness, reception and perception of the EU’s crisis response. Moreover, this study unpacks whether EU conflict prevention and crisis response policies are perceived as conflict sensitive and appropriate to the needs of vulnerable groups. This paper, therefore, offers important insights into local perceptions of the EU, and breaking results down by the following sectors: rule of law, development aid, humanitarian assistance and capacity building.
