In the preface to this 70-page paper, recently completed by RAND researcher Christopher S. Chivvis he state, "Since 2000, the European Union has been "developing civilian capabilities for use in civilian missions, including postconflict and other environments". This subject is of particular interest to researchers at the RAND Corporation's International Security and Defense Policy Center and this paper provides a general overview and assessment of the EU's civilian operations to date, along with a look at two specific missions in Afghanistan and Kosovo. The report is divided into five chapters, including a set of concluding remarks, a summary, and a list of figures and tables. Visitors with an interest in international relations, government, or organizational management will find this paper quite timely.
