Save the date: FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum 2017, 31 May, Berlin

Moving beyond crisis mode!

What's next for the new German guidelines for managing crises and conflicts?

For almost a year, the German government has engaged experts from government institutions, civil society and academia in a dialogue on the future German engagement in the field of conflict prevention, stabilisation and peacebuilding. But what follows from this dialogue process for the actual design and implementation of German peace policy? Can the new guidelines move long-term and cooperative approaches to peacebuilding into the center - in the face of increasing nationalism around the globe? Which concrete implementation steps are needed now – and which steps should the next German government take? How and where can the critical and constructive dialogue between state and civil society be pursued further? 

The Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt) invites actors and experts from government institutions, civil society and academia to discuss these and further questions at the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum in Berlin.
