The Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt) was going to host the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum in Berlin for the fifth time this year on June 17 and 18 2020. Under the title "Translate - Relate - Act: Forging Partnerships for Sustainable Peace", over 250 national and international experts from government agencies, civil society organizations, the academic field and international institutions were going to meet.
With much regret we must let you know that out of an abundance of caution the Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt) has decided to postpone the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum. We consider this necessary due to given recent developments relating to the COVID-19 outbreak and its impact on people and health. We are currently examining when we can make up for the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum.
We look forward to continuing our collaboration and will come back to you as soon as we can confirm the new date. Please be assured, our work continues. In the meantime, view the recap of the previous conferences or browse through the FriEnt PBF Voices Blog.
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.
