Berlin Summer Dialogue 2017

Exclusion as a cause of violent conflict. Strategies for International Cooperation

Around the world, crises and violent conflicts remain a major challenge for the international community. The causes are complex, but often enough social, political and economic exclusion play an important role. The members of the United Nations adopted the principle “to leave no one behind” with the Agenda 2030. International crisis engagement must therefore be reviewed critically to determine to what extent attention has focused exclusion so far. How can the international community play a supportive role in conflict situations? And what can be done to prevent the external actors to worsen existing forms of exclusion or trigger new ones?

These and other questions will be discussed at this year’s sef: Berlin Summer Dialogue with international experts from politics and administration, civil society and academia.

Public event on 28 June 2017 starting at 5 pm
"'Leave no one behind' – a paradigm for international crisis engagement?"

The Global Refugee Crisis: Towards a just response

NEW ISSUE PUBLISHED

Chimni in GLOBAL TRENDS. ANALYSIS 03|2018. Chimni therefore calls for a just response from the international community to the global refugee crisis. Such a response could only consist of a multidimensional strategy that had to be worked out in a genuine dialogue between all stakeholders.
