Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, former German diplomat Michael von der Schulenburg has warned against the escalation of the conflict and criticized the EU’s lack of political independence in its response to the war. At the peace conference, he will talk about how the European and international security architecture should be structured in order to resolve armed conflicts such as the war in Ukraine and prevent them in the future.

The Belarusian journalist and human rights activist Olga Karach is experiencing the tensions that threaten to tear Europe apart – and are already doing so in Ukraine – in her own life.
