The EAPCT Meeting brought together almost a hundred of participants representing political level actors, training insitutions and academia of peacebuilding and crisis management. The Meeting addressed the contemporary challenges in multidimensional peace operations with they key focus on theory to practice. As a result, the ethicality, protection of civilians and comprehensive approach need to be further streghtened in peace operations and crisis management. Also GAP project proposes that personnel involved in conflict prevention and peace building (CPPB) should emphasise the soft skills such as communication, cooperation, negotiation, mediation, gender and cultural awareness which will raise the implementation of Comprehensive Approach in future.
