The Institute for Peace in Partnership was created by eight students from Vesalius College (Brussels) in their last semester of studies in International Affairs. It was formed as part of their Capstone course on “EU’s Return to Peacekeeping” with Dr. Joachim A. Koops.
Together, we aim to advance EU-UN partnership in Peacekeeping, by means of a group Bachelor Thesis that we will present to the UN Liason Office for Peace and Security (UNLOPS) in April 2016.
On this page, the IPP Team will keep you updated with the advancement of its research project.
