Abstract: The prevention of conflicts and keeping peace appear to be not an easy task. Violent conflicts still break out while some situations remain quite fragile, threatening to create serious regional problems. The United Nations uses a wide range of actions in order to ease tensions and insure the peaceful settlement of crises. Regional organizations cannot be left aside of these processes as well, since in the modern world of interdependence, responsibilities are shared. The European Union has been actively engaged in conducting peace operations since 2003. Naturally, these actions require cooperation with the UN. The peace process in the 21st century requires a thoughtful approach, financial means and significant human resources in order to be successful. The EU and the UN can benefit from joining efforts since working together might ease some difficulties in keeping peace that otherwise an organization has to face by standing alone.
