Peace Talks Webinar – Chinese approaches to conflict management: Lessons for ongoing conflicts in near and far abroad
June 14, 2022 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
Tuesday 14 June 2022
12:30 – 13:30 BST
China’s vision of addressing violent conflicts and security challenges differs substantially from those of Western countries. China seeks stability, rather than peace; and China’s economic development, and connectivity and trade needs drive their engagement in conflict and post-conflict settings.
What lessons does this approach hold for contemporary conflicts, from Myanmar to the Horn of Africa and Ukraine? Speakers will present findings from recent PeaceRep reports on Chinese approaches to conflict management and what lessons these hold for contemporary conflicts, from Myanmar to the Horn of Africa and Ukraine. Followed by Q&A.
Confirmed presenters include Bernardo Mariani (independent consultant) and Monalisa Adhikari (PeaceRep research).
The speakers will discuss findings from recent Global Transitions reports:

About the Global Transitions Series:
PeaceRep’s Global Transitions Series looks at fragmentations in the global order and how these impact peace and transition settlements. It explores why and how different third-party actors – state, intergovernmental, and non-governmental – intervene in conflicts, and how they see themselves contributing to reduction of conflict and risks of conflict relapse. The series critically assesses the growth and diversification of global and regional responses to contemporary conflicts. It also asks how local actors are navigating this multiplicity of mediators and peacebuilders and how this is shaping conflict outcomes and post-conflict governance.
