Revision of the Instrument contributing to Stability and Peace

The impact assessment report appears to make a genuine effort to explain the problem in need of action, but it does not make an entirely convincing case for the need to act now. Nor does it refer to sound and comprehensive research and analysis in order to sufficiently substantiate the scale of the problem and its root causes. Options proposed, aside from the preferred one, do not appear to be realistic ones. There is no analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the available solutions and no real comparison of the likely impact of the options. The combination of these weaknesses undermines the credibility of the IA report as a whole.
