The Bundeskanzler-Helmut-Schmidt-Stiftung (BKHS) and the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) invite to the virtual launch of their report "From the Inside Out: Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution in a Changing World Order". ABI researcher Viviana García Pinzón will be there as an expert.

Russia’s war of aggression against Ukraine has had far-reaching consequences both for global conflicts and for local and international efforts to end war and build peace in all world regions. To what extent are, for example, crises in food or energy supply as result of the war in Ukraine contributing to conflict escalation in other world regions? What have been the consequences of the shifting roles of Russia or China? And what does Russia’s war against Ukraine mean for the global peace architecture and the future of conflict resolution, post-war reconstruction and peacebuilding?

To obtain a better understanding of these global consequences of Russia’s war against Ukraine, the Bundeskanzler-Helmut-Schmidt-Stiftung (BKHS) and Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) are setting up a “Global Expert Group on Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding”. The network brings together representatives from civil society, academia, and politics who themselves come from conflict-affected and post-conflict countries or who have worked on these issues in their regions. Jointly, they aim to develop policy recommendations on how to tackle the direct political, economic or societal consequences of Russia’s war against Ukraine in conflict-affected and post-conflict countries worldwide, as well as the long-term geostrategic effects of the war. They further aim to develop lessons learned about post-war reconstruction practices that may also be relevant for Ukraine.

The report of the expert group - "From the Inside Out: Peacebuilding and Conflict Resolution in a Changing World Order" - will be launched in a virtual setting on February 21 at 2 pm. Further information and the registration link can be found here.
