Europe is increasingly required to assume greater responsibility for its own well-being and security. In the first part of the lecture, Caecilia van Peski will address issues regarding peace and security not only in Europe but as well as around the world. The talk starts with the perception and awareness of risk and threat in today’s society. Examples will be given both from the national, regional as well as international levels (Afghanistan, Ukraine, Georgia, Russia federation), all with respect to changes in geopolitical realities. Together with the audience, the speaker will explore the concept of strategic autonomy for Europe.
The second part of the event will point at opportunities for Modern-day Conflict Resolution by use of the UN Agenda 2030 and the Sustainable Development Goals. Specific attention will be given to SDG #16 (Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions), which promotes peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, providing access to justice for all and the building of effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. Specific attention will be given to the importance of (individual, community and societal) resilience.
