Open Seminar at ECMI

Reconciliation and Peace building in Post-war Societies. A European Challenge


Open seminar at ECMI: Reconciliation and Peace building in Post-war Societies. A European Challenge

On April 25, ECMI opens its doors to both laymen and scholars. A seminar focusing on reconciliation and peace building in a European context is open for all.

Regularly, ECMI organizes public seminars focusing on key thematic areas of research. The Conflict & Security cluster at ECMI is anchoring this thematic seminar on reconciliation and peace-building in post-war European societies. The occasion of the 20th anniversary of the breakout of the Bosnian War invites special attention to be paid to the Balkans.

Core issues of intergroup conflicts are contents of the seminar. Feasible policies aimed at reconciliation and establishment of lasting peace within post-conflict contexts are main subjects of the cluster and the invited speakers.

Meet young researchers

The seminar is primarily intended for talented young researchers to share knowledge and experiences.

ECMI conceives this seminar as an opportunity to liaise and to get to know more about on-going research interests and future plans of the selected speakers. There is no reason for ECMI to keep this opportunity closed for an interested audience.

Wishing to seize the opportunity to discuss the future challenges of reconciliation and peace-building in Europe, the aim of the seminar and the activity of ECMI altogether is to enhance the knowledge and understanding of reconciliation by engaging speakers and participants in a meaningful reflection about the past, present and future post-war experiences within Europe. Needless to say, the challenge is closely linked to ECMI’s core mandate of minority issues.

Programme and venue

The seminar takes place at Schiffbrücke 12 (Kompagnietor Gebäude) in Flensburg from 9:30–15:00. The working language is English.
