Pillars for peaceful societies

  • The eight pillars of peace should be addressed simultaneously, as much as possible: a well-functioning government; a sound business environment; an equitable distribution of resources; an acceptance of the rights of others; good relations with neighbors; free flow of information; a high level of human capital; and low levels of corruption.
  • Europe’s security strategy has to addressed all pillars of the Defence Union, including: Common capability development; Additional resources for security and defence; Strengthening Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) action; A common strategic culture and gradual framing of a common defence policy; Reinforced cooperation between Member States’ armed forces; Enhanced core partnerships, in particular with NATO and the United Nations.
  • Sustainable Development Goal 16, “Promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all, and build effective, accountable, and inclusive institutions at all levels”, might help address the corruption-peace nexus.
