Particularly in the context of the impending withdrawal of the military from Afghanistan, civilian alternatives yet again are becoming highly relevant to the current situation. But where should civilian conflict management start? How can it be made more ‘customer friendly’? What is the relationship between civilian peace service and development cooperation? Who are the main actors for conflict settlement in Afghanistan? How do Afghan men and women solve the conflicts in their everyday life? And—which political conclusions should Germany draw from the Afghanistan mission?

Participants in the panel discussion, which BICC organized on the occasion of the book publication „Zivile Konfliktbearbeitung – Vom Anspruch zur Wirklichkeit“ (Civilian conflict management—from theory to practice) by Andreas Heinemann-Grüder and Isabella Bauer (editors) are:

  • Isabella Bauer, Lecturer at the Academy for Conflict Transformation and Consultant in civilian conflict management,
