Mapping analysis report
In our latest “mapping analysis report”, we provide valuable insights into the implementation of EU Missions. The report outlines the governance mechanisms, actors, and instruments involved during the early phase of these missions. Notably, this report serves as an important resource for understanding the realities of EU Mission implementation and guiding future decision-making processes. In cooperation with national and regional representatives, we have obtained a detailed picture of the current situation of EU Mission implementation in 16 EU countries: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Spain, and Sweden.
In addition to this collaboration, we conducted an online survey with 210 respondents from various actors across the EU, including non-Member States. The survey provided valuable insights into the implementation status, specific instruments, relevant challenges, and support needs related to EU Mission implementation.
One key observation is that the level of implementation or anchoring of Missions aligns closely with the starting points and pre-established mechanisms in each country or region. In essence, it reflects the existing political and funding landscape. When the issues addressed by the Missions are already well integrated into these structures, the Missions' messages resonate more easily, and the new priorities find a swift reflection in policies and actions.
It is important to note that countries committed to adopting the Mission approach initiated by the European Commission also seek to embed their own interpretation of EU Missions into their existing national approaches to Mission-oriented policy. This highlights the need for flexibility and adaptability to accommodate diverse interpretations and foster fruitful collaboration.
Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to explore and improve the implementation of EU Missions.
