The EU’s Global Engagement database was developed by a research team composed of Danilo Di Mauro, Ulrich Krotz, and Katerina Wright within the Europe in the World programme at the Robert Schumann Centre of Advanced Studies (EUI). The primary purpose of the database is to fill the gap in existing empirical knowledge by providing the most comprehensive, complete and accurate database on the EU’s military operations and civilian missions worldwide. The version 2.0 of the database contains detailed information on all of the 35 military operations and civilian missions initiated from the first CSDP operation in January 2003 to December 2017. The codebook is structured in four parts. In Part I we explain the rationale of our project, the innovations introduced in version 2.0, the methodology of data collection, including the sources used and the possible applications. Part II describes each variable reporting definitions and descriptive statistics. Part III presents factsheets of each EU mission and operation by using some selected variables of the database. Finally, Part IV shows some descriptive analyses through 92 figures combining different variables and focusing on six topics: trends of the interventions, cooperation among member states, the Engagement Index, expenditures, overall personnel, EU member states personnel deployed. The files and the documentation of the EU’s Global Engagement database are open access and downloadable at http://globalgovernanceprogramme.eui.eu/eu-global-engagement-database/.
