Peace conference launched in Berlin in response to escalating conflicts

We're hosting The Berlin Moot, a high-level international peacemaking conference, on 17 & 18 April 2024 at the Humboldt Forum in Berlin.
The events unfolding in Gaza, the failed international intervention in Afghanistan, the war in Ukraine, and the devastating conflict in Sudan exemplify the current crisis in peacemaking. Launched in response, the Berlin Moot will provide an interdisciplinary space to develop urgently needed methods to address the current complexity of war and conflict.  

"We find ourselves, at the start of 2024, facing the highest number of violent conflicts globally since the Second World War. And many of those are escalating in alarming ways. Intended to devise improved peacemaking strategies, the Berlin Moot provides a significant step forward in addressing the types of atrocities being carried out in numerous conflicts today."

- Andrew Gilmour, Executive Director, Berghof Foundation

"We believe in the power of dialogue, cooperation and mediation as essential tools to build a more peaceful world. Supporting the conference, we look forward to constructive discussions between actors with broad and diverse expertise, providing new impulse and advance sustainable peacemaking."

- Dr Tobias Lindner, Minister of State at the German Federal Foreign Office

The Berlin Moot is an invitation-only event with 200 participants who will develop specific and actionable recommendations for both policy and practice and foster new alliances for action. Innovative sessions, or ‘PeaceLabs’, will challenge current peacemaking approaches by intersecting existing tools with insights from neuroscience, human rights, transitional justice, and the business sector, among other fields. In addition to international policymakers and practitioners, the conference will feature voices from academia, civil society and the private sector. 
Selected panels will be livestreamed and open to the public. You can find more information, including the programme and speakers, on our newly-launched The Berlin Moot website.
