EPLO was created in 1999 as a way for organisations with an interest in peacebuilding to engage with the European Union institutions with a view to influencing the way the EU intervened in conflicts around the world.

It was my job while working for a year at the Quaker Council for European Affairs in Brussels to put a proposal together and build support for it. It was set up at the end of that year by a coalition of peacebuilding organisations.
