Event Peace Report 2021 \ Europe can do more—Also in conflicts in eastern Europe?

Globally, the conflict situation remains at a high level, and Europe is no exception. Nagorno-Karabakh and Donbas represent de facto regimes where violence has recently escalated or is always threatening to escalate. How can negotiation processes be strengthened? How can the German government and the European Union improve their early warning systems to better assess the potential for escalation?

Among other things, the Peace Report 2021 suggests that the European Union should explore possibilities for cooperation between the OSCE and the Russian mission in Nagorno-Karabakh, including internationalisation of control over the Lachin Corridor and the checkpoints to Azerbaijan. In the case of Ukraine, it recommends appointing a special envoy for Ukraine to effectively coordinate European action and to counterbalance Russia in negotiations on Donbas.

BICC invites you to discuss the conflict situation online with eastern Europe expert and BICC researcher Andreas Heinemann-Grüder on 22 September 2021.

Andreas Heinemann-Grüder, author of Peace Report 2021, will address these and other questions at the lecture and discussion "Peace Report 2021 \ Europe can do more—Also in conflicts in eastern Europe?" (online via Zoom, in German). BICC's event is part of the UN Peace Days in Bonn.
