First Austrian Forum for Peace - "A Future for Peace: Rethinking our Answers in an Unpredictable Global Landscape"
Conference 3-6 July 2023 at Schlaining Castle
The war in Ukraine, the renewed rivalry between the great powers, the worsening loss of livelihoods driven by the climate crisis, and the effects of rapid technological change continue to dramatically impact security and stability around the world. Working for peace requires a constant endeavour to rethink previously established answers.
The Austrian Forum for Peace is a new, never before seen format in Austria, established to rethink approaches for resolving conflict and sustaining peace, to break through the spreading fog of global unpredictability. Elucidating answers requires a diversity of experience, approach, and perspective, which will be brought together in this new forum.
As a all-party platform for dialogue and mediation, the ACP has been assisting conflicting parties to work out their differences for over 40 years. At Schlaining Castle, home of the ACP, only about 20 km from the former Iron Curtain, it is also a place where experts from all over the world train for peace and where new concepts of peace research are created and discussed.
The main topics of the conference - Peace Processes in a Fragmented World and Innovation for Peace: Conflict and Climate - will be separately approached in panel discussions succeeded by expert workshops, happening in parallel.
On the last day of the Austrian Forum for Peace a Peace-Tech Marketplace will be organized, to bring together different initiatives and will showcase technology that can be used in peace-work, an ACP focal point.
