EU Civilian Missions

The European Union pursues a Common Foreign and Security Policy (CFSP), as part of which it organises civilian missions (as opposed to military missions) for the purpose of reinforcing the Rule of Law. The Dutch government contributes to these missions by providing Rule of Law experts employed by the Public Prosecution Service, the prison system and the judicial branch. These experts provide their services in EU neighbouring countries, developing countries, and in international peace missions. In their day-to-day work, they advise foreign partners on how to strengthen the rule of law and the judicial chain.



Selection process

The Council for the Judiciary is the Dutch authority that provides advice on the participation of employees of the Judiciary. Once the Council has approved participation, the selection process at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs can begin. The International Cooperation division at the Council can provide information on current EU civilian missions and on how the selection process is conducted.
