Comparison of two vastly different institutions —Germany, a nation state, and the EU, an international organization—sheds analytical light on the way different bodies manage a similar policy problem. By way of empirical research, the paper finds that incremental planning, decentralization and autonomous leadership enhance performance as they enable peacebuilders to respond flexibly to the dynamic challenges they face in the field. This was the case with Germany, however not with the EU. No strategic fit prevailed on evaluation. Strategy review either failed (Germany) or had unintended consequences (EU).</dcterms:abstract> <dc:date rdf:datatype="">2019-02-05T12:10:28Z</dc:date> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
