OxPeace Conference 2023: Learning from Ukraine

How can the war in Ukraine inform our understanding of peace? Experts from the Oxford Network of Peace Studies -- from University of Oxford, United Nations, World Economic Forum and more -- explore the origins, impacts and lessons of the conflict for peacebuilding.

'OxPeace', the Oxford Network of Peace Studies, is a multidisciplinary network to promote the study of peace, peacemaking, peacekeeping and peacebuilding in Oxford University and beyond. Through conferences, seminars and practical training workshops, OxPeace showcases the study of peace across a wide variety of disciplines, networks with practitioners and policy-makers.

Previous OxPeace conferences are available via the 'Department of Politics and International Relations (DPIR)' page linked below.
