Reshaping Alliances for Peace and Security

Political Evening

In response to global developments in the last decade, the EU has made it an objective to become a “security provider” – also in regions which are increasingly characterised by power politics. In this context, how can Europe be a credible and reliable partner to keep peacebuilding on the agenda?

Interview & Exchange in Groups

The communities that are most affected by climate change often also face conflict and violence. A just global response to the climate crisis calls for global solidarity and cross-sectoral cooperation. How can environmental peacebuilding address injustices and conflicts to promote a just transition?

Coffee Break & Networking

Addressing Dilemmas in Power Shifts

Impulse & Exchange in Groups

Feminist approaches in development cooperation and foreign policy aim to transform patriarchal power structures for the benefit of equal participation, rights, and access to resources for all – a basic prerequisite for sustainable development and peace. How do peacebuilding practitioners and feminist actors navigate resistance in transforming power structures and root causes of conflict?
