BICC (Bonn International Centre for Conflict Studies) cordially invites to the international conference “Between concepts and reality – How to deal with armed groups in transition phases of violent conflict?” on 11 and 12 November 2021 via Zoom.

The conference asks whether there is a need for fresh thinking in engaging (former) combatants in different conflicts around the world. For this purpose, we aim to bring together international academics in peace and conflict studies, policy makers, and practitioners working directly on such issues and in related fields.

You can find an outline and the programme of the conference here.

The conference will be held online via Zoom. To register please visit our registration page. Please note that this is a two-step process, and you will have to register separately for the plenary sessions and the breakout sessions. Please register at the latest by 5 November 2021.

We very much hope that you will be able to participate in BICC’s Annual Conference.
If you have any organizational questions, please do not hesitate to contact Susanne Heinke at [email protected]

End of registration: 05.11.2021
