This report draws on some recent operational experiences of the ICRC to describe the theory and practice of the ICRC’s approach to humanitarian assistance in protracted conflict. The ICRC spends about two thirds of its budget on protracted conflicts. The average length of time the ICRC has been present in the countries hosting its ten largest operations is more than 36 years. Protracted conflicts are a major source of human suffering and a cause of protracted displacement, migration and development reversals.

EU Crisis Response - 11 September and the Laeken Summit
Brussels, 29 April 2002: A new briefing paper, EU Crisis Response Capabilities: An Update, finds that the EU has made progress in developing crisis management competence since ICG's initial study ten months ago.* However, its Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP) still punches below its weight because member states have not yet mastered the art of speaking with a single voice and given adequate resources to their fledgling European Security and Defence Policy (ESDP).
