6th Peace & Conflict Talk (PaCT)

One Year of War – Remembrance and Questions About War and Peace

The Peace and Conflict Talk (PaCT) is a forum where perspectives on the past and recent states and developments are shared. FGZ-Bielefeld cordially invites you to the 6th talk on February 24th that is exactly 365 days after the full-scale war of Russia in Ukraine began. It also serves this remembrance.

Feburary 24, 2023 | 10 - 11:30 am | Online

A year of the full scale war has passed; 365 days of unimaginable suffering. We, who mostly witness this suffering from the outside as researchers, seekers of knowledge, questioners, are deeply moved and at a loss before questions. The war, which began much earlier, plunges us into uncertainty, because the full extent is hardly comprehensible, and the developments are hardly understandable. The Peace and Conflict Talk (PaCT) is a forum for interested people who want to understand. We share our perspectives on the past and recent states and developments. The peace and conflict research community continues to strive for understanding.

At this very special day of the 24th we have questions. How are the people in Ukraine? How are our colleagues? What has happened, what is happening, and what will happen? Can wefind hope, can people in Ukraine hope?

At our 6th PaCT we give space to our colleagues in Ukraine and hear how they are doing, what do they need, what moves them? To this end, we have invited our colleague Iryna, who will provide insights on the anniversary. In addition, we will briefly look at the question ofhow peace concepts stood in Germany when
the full scale war began, based on the Bielefeld Peace Study.
