From early warning to early action? The debate on the enhancement of the EU's crisis response capability continues
This new book is a collection of writing illustrating the progress made in the area of crisis response and preparedness in action with input from policy experts and practitioners in the field. It builds on the range of views aired at the Commission's conference 'From Early Warning to Early action', held in November 2007, involving more than 900 diplomats, officers, practitioners, scholars and advocates, representing all facets of the network of European crisis responders.
The book is divided into four main parts: partnership-building, mediation and peace-keeping, natural resource wars, and trans-regional threats, early-warning and intelligence.
