Fostering resilience for sustainable peace


COMECE together with Justice&Peace Europe and Pax Christi International submitted a contribution to the forthcoming Joint Communication from the EU High Representative and the European Commission on resilience. The contribution entitled “Fostering resilience for sustainable peace” provides reflections and 10 concrete proposals for implementing resilience – one of EU’s strategic priorities.


While welcoming the prioritisation of resilience in EU’s Global Strategy, the COMECE contribution puts the emphasis on the human being, family and local community which should build the primary focus of EU’s resilience-fostering efforts.


By pursuing a people-centered, comprehensive, context-specific and forward-looking approach, the strengthening of resilience should contribute to integral human development and sustainable peace. The long-standing role of Churches and faith-based organisations in this process should be duly recognised and taken into account.
