Europe in the Shadow of War:
New Challenges for Civilian Crisis Prevention and Conflict Management
Save the date: 29 September 2022, 10.00 a.m. – 5.00 p.m, Federal Foreign Office, Berlin
For the first time since the end of the East-West conflict, the whole of Europe is threatened by a major military conflict. Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine represents a blatant breach of the principles of the United Nations Charter and marks a “Zeitenwende”, a turning point. This raises anew the question of the peace and security order, both in Europe and at the global level.
The Berlin Peace Dialogue 2022 will therefore focus on the effectiveness and limitations of instruments currently in use as well as on the potential of innovations in the field of civil crisis prevention and conflict management. In various formats, the current national and European institutional structures and instruments of early warning and civil crisis prevention will be scrutinized and discussed against the backdrop of Russia’s aggression. One main emphasis will be on the impact of Russia’s war of aggression on civilian means of crisis management, particularly in the Eastern European region.
This year’s Berlin Peace Dialogue will offer insightful testimonials and perspectives from international practitioners, researchers, policy makers and peace activists.
The conference language is English (with simultaneous translation). The program and details on how to register and participate (on-site or digitally) will be released in late August. If you have any questions, please contact the coordinator of the advisory board, Rasmus Bellmer: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking forward to welcoming you to the conference.
