Shifting Power in Peace.
New Dynamics and Agendas – Reshaping Cooperation for Sustainable Peace and Development
June 05, 5 pm - 9.30 pm
June 06, 9 am - 2 pm
The Working Group on Peace and Development (FriEnt) is very pleased to announce that the sixth edition of the FriEnt Peacebuilding Forum will take place on 5 and 6 June 2024 in Berlin, Germany.
Speakers and participants from around the globe will shape the discussions and interactive sessions on current challenges and trends:
Are we ready for just peace?
Structural causes for violent conflict cannot be addressed with military means alone. Decisive action by the peacebuilding community and beyond is needed to build just peace.
The Peacebuilding Forum will focus on three policy areas:
Reshaping Alliances for Peace and Security
What is the role for Europe?
Promoting Peace through Climate Justice
How can environmental peacebuilding address injustices and conflicts to promote a just transition?
Feminist Development and Foreign Policy
How can dilemmas in power shifts be addressed?
Side events on related topics are scheduled to take place from 29 May to 12 June 2024.
This website will be updated on a regular basis and further information about the conference will be available nearer the time.
