The European Union has been slow and reactive in responding to the crisis in Ukraine and the following conflict between the Kremlin and Kyiv but, nevertheless, provided some positive impact on the peacebuilding process.
This in-depth case study analyses three EU conflict prevention and peacebuilding interventions in Ukraine: one diplomatic case (Normandy Format), two missions in the field of security sector reform -The European Union Border Assistance Mission to Moldova and Ukraine (EUBAM) and The European Union Advisory Mission Ukraine (EUAM)- and one in the field of governance reform (decentralization).
The study reflects how the EU's civilian capabilities in conflict prevention and peacebuilding can be enhanced and implemented in a more inclusive and sustainable manner.

The Present Handbook on Police Accountability, Oversight and Integrity is one of the practical tools developed by UNODC to support countries in the implementation of the rule of law and the development of criminal justice reform. It aims to assist countries in their efforts to develop effective systems of oversight and accountability within their law enforcement authorities and enhance police integrity, and it addresses issues including:
- Enhancement of police integrity and the integrity of policing
- Dealing with complaints about policing (receipt, investigation and follow-up)
- Setting policing priorities and encouraging policy input, including from outside the police
- “Inviting” external review, including from independent actors
The Handbook describes an integrated approach to installing an effective police accountability system, including both preventive and corrective measures, and explains the roles and functions of the different actors in this system.
