This meeting note summarizes discussions among some forty participants from permanent missions to the United Nations, the Department of Peacekeeping Operations, the Department of Political Affairs, the European Union, NATO, and select donor capitals at a seminar held in New York on February 20, 2006. Subsequent to the September 2005 World Summit, this meeting further probed the issue of regional and international relationships in general, and the EU/AU/UN relationship in particular, in addressing challenges of peace, security, development, and capacity building.
