Vredesduif met olijftak in snavel.

Complex Wars

2-6-2016 The peace movement has a long history in dealing with interstate wars. However, traditional conflicts have been replaced by complex wars within states involving a range of stakeholders. This debate will explore the new role of the peace movement.


This new warfare trend is increasingly victimizing civilians in conflict areas. Do drone strikes, air bombings or boots on the ground really bring alleviation to civilians? How does†the peace movement respond to the use of military force used in interventions? Are peace movement initiatives affecting military interventions? And what does the peace movement see as viable solutions to establish long-lasting peace?

Joining the debate:
- Jan Jaap van Oosterzee - Advisor policy and public affairs Middle East and Caucasus (PAX)
- Thea Hilhorst - Professor of humanitarian aid and reconstruction (ISS)
- GabriŽlla Vogelaar - Project Coordinator EU Peacebuilding Review (GPPAC)
