It provides relevant expertise for the planning, management and implementation
of civil crisis prevention, stabilisation and peacebuilding interventions.
The Stabilisation Platform enhances the operational capabilities of the Federal Foreign Office, with a view to delivering on its core tasks: preventing crises, resolving conflicts and building peace.
The Federal Foreign Office has commissioned the Deutsche Gesellschaft
für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH to operate the Stabilisation Platform.
It consists of specialists with relevant expertise for the operationalisation of
Federal Foreign Office policies to promote peace.
The Federal Foreign Office is committed to making effective use of its diplomatic capabilities and the budgetary resources made available by the German Bundestag to deliver interventions that promote its peace and security policy. The goal is to act earlier, more decisively and more substantively in crisis and conflict situations.
The Federal Foreign Office has pooled the competencies for delivering on this goal in its Directorate-General S (Crisis Prevention, Stabilisation, Peacebuilding and Humanitarian Assistance).
Intervening in crisis and conflict contexts requires a combination of strong leadership and the ability to take swift, flexible and decisive action. The Stabilisation Platform supports the Federal Foreign Office in delivering on this task.
The Stabilisation Platform provides the Federal Foreign Office with specialised monitoring and analysis systems in order to align its interventions even more closely with political processes and to better identify and assess project-specific risks.
Stabilisation projects are often complex and can rarely be planned for the long term. The Stabilisation Platform therefore provides tried and tested instruments for agile planning and flexible management.
The Stabilisation Platform helps strengthen the analytical and operational capacities of the Federal Foreign Office so that it can support mediation and dialogue efforts in international peace processes and United Nations peacebuilding measures.
International peace processes require rapprochement and dialogue among the conflict parties. To this end, the Stabilisation Platform provides innovative and tailor-made negotiation, dialogue and learning formats.
