Moving beyond crisis mode! What's next for the new German guidelines for managing crises and conflicts?

31 May 2017, 6.00pm, An der Urania 17, Berlin

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, crisis management and peacebuilding.

But what follows from this dialogue process for the actual design and implementation of German peace policy? How can the new guidelines move long-term and cooperative approaches to peacebuilding into the center? 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. 

Please note that this year's Peacebuilding Forum is a public evening event and will be held in German. The next international conference is scheduled for spring 2018.

 


FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum

The FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum is a series of events on current and overarching challenges and trends in peacebuilding. With the Peacebuilding Forum, we want to provide future-oriented impulses for the development of peacebuilding and strengthen the visibility and importance of the policy field in its entirety.

The participants of the forum can exchange ideas, discuss overarching questions and seek for common solutions. The aim is to build bridges between state and civil society actors, between local and global perspectives and also between science and practice.

PBF Voices Blog

On our PBF Voices Blog we accompany the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum with a blog to provide a space for conference speakers, participants and other interested persons to share ideas and insights on the future of peacebuilding policy and practice.

In the run-up to this year's FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum, we asked international partners of FriEnt’s member organisations to formulate their expectations on the German commitment to peacebuilding and crisis prevention. The articles will be gradually published in the "PBF Voices Blog"! You are cordially invited to discuss with us and make your comments on the blog!
