Launch “From the Inside Out: Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution in a Changing World Order”

21. Februar | Virtual launch of the report 2 p.m.

The effects of Russia’s attack on Ukraine on 24 February 2022 – the first large-scale interstate war in an era dominated by intrastate conflicts – and the responses to it differed across the world. Ahead of the second anniversary of the invasion, the Bundeskanzler-Helmut-Schmidt-Stiftung (BKHS) and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) issue their new report: 

“From the Inside Out: Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution in a Changing World Order”.

During the event, Viviana García Pinzón (Arnold Bergstraesser Institute), Happymon Jacob (Jawaharlal Nehru University), Velma Šarić (Post-Conflict Research Center), Lidet Tadesse Shiferaw (European Centre for Development Policy Management), Tina Blohm (FES) and Julia Strasheim (BKHS) will discuss core findings and recommendations on:

  • The Ukraine war’s impact on conflict-affected societies around the world,
  • Past pitfalls of international peacebuilding at risk of being repeated,
  • The future of peacebuilding in a changing global order.

The discussion will be moderated by Kirsten Hartmann (BKHS).

The event will be held in English.

About the project:

In early 2023, BKHS and FES set up a “Global Expert Group on Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding” comprising 13 leading representatives from academia, politics and civil society from (post-)conflict countries. Based on group discussions and additional expert interviews, the report examines how and to what extent Russia’s ongoing war on Ukraine and wider geopolitical shifts have affected global conflict dynamics in the past two years, as well as evolving practices and agendas in international peacebuilding and conflict resolution.
