Dear friends, partners and colleagues,
The military aggression against Ukraine and war crimes and atrocities committed are a major threat not only to Ukrainian citizens, but also to Europe's stability and the global security order. The latest developments are a serious setback to peace and require peacebuilding organisations such as ours to invest even greater efforts towards negotiation, dialogue and all other means of conflict transformation.
Nevertheless, the war in Ukraine should not take our eyes off the humanitarian catastrophes and continuing conflicts taking place in other parts of the world, such as in Afghanistan, Ethiopia and Yemen.
In this newsletter, we want to share with you an update on our recent work and thinking. We are particularly proud to share a video that highlights our work over the last 50 years, but you will also find articles on the current situation in Afghanistan and Somalia, recordings of our most recent events and our latest publications on non-state armed groups and resistance and liberation movements.
