Abstract: Ever since CSDP military crisis management became operational in 2003, the Council of the European Union recognized the importance to learn lessons from its missions. So far, the EU seems to have learned some lessons from its missions (institutionalization of ATHENA, the battlegroup concept) and others not, since the military branch of CSDP remains characterized by drawbacks in logistics, infrastructure and capabilities. The ability to learn from former experiences therefore seems to be a crucial precondition for CSDP operationality.
But why? Why did the EU, in the field of military crisis management learn some lessons from its missions and not others? In order to answer this question, I show in a first step how organizational learning theory provides us with the tools to develop an analytical framework to flesh out triggers and constraints in CSDP experiential learning. In a second step, I will set out the EU´s infrastructure for learning and enrich the framework with empirical evidence from different CSDP military operations (Concordia, Artemis, Althea) that was gained through extensive interviewing at the corresponding EU institutions. Building upon this, I develop recommendations on how to increase CSDP operationality in my concluding section.

Abstract: Throughout the Iraq War, Private Military Companies proved their ability to handle many of the peace operation missions conducted by the multilateral forces. Furthermore, PMCs are now part of the Total Force in Iraq that the US military forces heavily rely on. With significant weight put on PMCs’ logistics in conducting warfare and operations, we wonder if this may be the future model of military operations. By looking at the debates and discussion in academic community and international organizations, this presentation will look at what should be the appropriate demarcation of roles between official defense organizations and private military contractors.

Abstract: Military intervention in an area where armed conflict is taking place is, to say the least, a risky undertaking. There is a mass of information that decision makers can and must gather and analyze in order to find answers to important questions. In additi
