  • 9. European Association of History EducatorsSupported byBelgian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Foreign Trade and Development CooperationIn today’s globalised society, no single development or issue can leave us indifferent, andinternational cooperation has become more crucial than ever. The FPS representsBelgium in several international organisations and in different parts of the world, taking aproactive approach to policy, especially on vital issues like peace and security, humanrights and promotion of the rule of law, with a view to striving for a fairer and moreprosperous world.Conflict prevention, peace building and peacekeeping are key components of Belgium’spolicy on peace and security. However, its policy in this area is about much more thanjust these elements. Promoting peace and security requires an overall multidimensionalapproach in different areas, such as the fight against terrorism, and non-proliferationand disarmament. With specific regard to non-proliferation and disarmament, Belgiumplayed an especially active role in the adoption of the Convention on the Prohibition ofAnti-Personnel Mines, and more recently in the signing of the convention banningcluster munitions.Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs: Western Balkans UnitThe essential task of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is to work for Norway’s interestsinternationally: to safeguard the country’s freedom, security and prosperity. Norway’sinterests are determined by such factors as its geographical location in a strategicallyimportant area, its open economy, its position as a coastal state and steward ofsubstantial marine resources, and its extensive exports of oil and gas. The best way topromote Norway’s interests is to cooperate with like-minded countries. This also meansthat the Foreign Service must handle conflicts of interest with other countries in amanner that is to Norway’s advantage, while seeking to avoid disputes. The Ministryalso works to promote peace and security, an international legal system, aneconomically just world order and sustainable development. Finding a solution toissues of this kind is in Norway’s interests too, while at the same time efforts in theseareas are an expression of international solidarity. Since the early 1990s, Norway hasbeen playing an important role as facilitator in a number of peace and reconciliationprocesses. Norway’s experience has shown that small countries can also play aconstructive role in resolving complex armed conflicts, even without the directinvolvement of the UN or the major powers. Norwegian peace efforts are, however,contingent on all the involved parties showing a genuine will to negotiate and on theiracceptance of Norway as a facilitator. Norway can offer long-term political andeconomic involvement, including after a peace agreement has been reached.The EUROCLIO Project ‘History that Connects-Republic of Macedonia’ is financially supported by the Belgium Ministry ofForeign Affairs. ‘How to teach sensitive and controversial history in the countries of Former Yugoslavia’ is financiallysupported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Open Society Foundation - Education Support Programme(Budapest) and endorsed by the United Nations Alliance of Civilisations.
