EU High Representative Mogherini’s visit to the Sahel region this week reaffirms the EU’s key partnership with G5 Sahel to tackle the security challenges that the Sahel countries are facing. With three European civilian and military crisis management missions on the ground and an ongoing regionalisation process, the EU is a key security partner for the G5 Sahel and its member countries – fostering stability in the region, providing security at home.
‘’When women get involved in a peace process, peace lasts longer’’, EU High Representative Mogherini stated on the occasion of a high-level academic roundtable on Women, Peace and Security organised by the EEAS on 25 June. Following up on the EU Strategic Approach to Women, Peace and Security adopted in December 2018, the event brought together leading scholars, EU senior representatives and civil society organisations for a pragmatic discussion on gender equality, women’s empowerment and their role in conflict management and prevention.
