The European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) cooperate closely in crisis management around the world. In 2003, when the EU deployed its first civilian and military operations, the two organisations issued a Joint Declaration on EU-UN Cooperation in Crisis Management. Since then, they have strengthened their strategic partnership.

Most recently in December 2021, the EU and UN renewed the priorities for cooperation on peace operations and crisis management for 2022-2024. The Strategic Compass adopted in March 2022 further calls for a reinforced EU-UN strategic partnership on the basis of the new set of priorities.
