EU-LISTCO investigates the challenges posed to European foreign policy by identifying risks connected to areas of limited statehood and contested orders. Through the analysis of the EU Global Strategy and Europe’s foreign policy instruments, the project assesses how the preparedness of the EU and its member states can be strengthened to better anticipate, prevent and respond to threats of governance breakdown and to foster resilience in Europe’s neighbourhoods in the East and South. 

Continuous knowledge exchange between researchers and foreign policy practitioners is at the cornerstone of EU-LISTCO. Since the project’s inception, a consortium of fourteen leading universities and think tanks works together to develop policy recommendations for the EU’s external action toolbox, in close coordination with European decision-makers. 

Within the consortium the GIP, together with the IDC Herzliya, co-leads the work package three, which analyzes the impact of global and diffuse risks in EU’s neighborhood regions.  

The project is being funded under the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme and will run from March 2018 through February 2021.
