Public event \ “Der Preis der ‚Zeitenwende‘?“

On 21 September 2022, BICC together with Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, Plattform Zivile Konfliktbearbeitung and Deutsche Gesellschaft für die Vereinten Nationen will organise a panel discussion in Bonn on the future of international arms control.

Even before Russia's war of aggression in Ukraine, global military global military expenditure was growing and international arms control was in a deep crisis. The talks between the USA and Russia on disarmament and arms control are at a standstill. For the first time since the end of the Cold War, the threat of nuclear war seems real.

How bad is international arms control at the moment? What is the impact of war? How can trust between states and and cooperation be rebuilt? And what initiatives initiatives are needed to revive arms control regimes? 

These questions will be discussed by

Prof. Dr. Dietmar Köster, Member of the European Parilament
