Peacebuilding in Europe
This initiative examines contemporary peace concerns in Europe from a reflexive, cross-disciplinary perspective. Through applied research conducted in collaboration with students of the IHEID Global Security Capstone Project, this initiative is considering how ‘peace’ is conceived in Europe in 2020, the main political and security debates relevant to contemporary notions of peacebuilding in Europe and the main fault lines and opportunities for peacebuilding today. This initiative will also showcase the work of local level actors in Europe working for peace on issues relating to migration, preventing violent extremism, countering hate-speech and xenophobia, governance and security, and democracy and elections.
Persons interested in joining this initiative should contact Claudia at claudia[@]gpplatform[dot]ch.
