Lessons from History: 20 years after the end of the Kosovo conflict

About

In an era where our security environment seems increasingly and ever-more rapidly subject to complex, global and interconnected challenges, it is important to regularly ‘go back to basics’: take a step back and understand history’s profound effects on our world, allowing us to better prepare for the future. Friends of Europe will look back at previous efforts in history to make peace and the lessons we can draw from those experiences to solve today’s conflicts.

With 20 years after the end of the Kosovo conflict, this event will explore the response by the international community to the conflict, their successes and failures as well as the aftermath of their intervention in order to draw conclusions and lessons for today’s transnational and multi-faceted conflicts.

In our series of ‘Lessons from History’ we take a step back to understand history’s profound effects on our world, allowing us to better prepare for the future. Our second event in the series will explore lessons from the Kosovo conflict and the international community’s response: In the wake of this conflict and the failure of the international community to respond to the Rwandan Genocide and the massacre at Srebrenica, the Responsibility to Protect (R2P) was adopted, equipping the international community with the means to protect people from genocide, war crimes, ethnic cleansing and crimes against humanity. With a focus on the direct and indirect outcomes of the Kosovo conflict and reflecting on the responses by the international community we aim to uncover and share the lessons learned with the audience.

  • To what extent did the Kosovo conflict shape the EU’s and NATO’s role as security actors?
  • How did the failures and successes in the efforts to end the conflict change the notion and approach of conflict prevention and peace building?
  • What role does the legacy of the conflict play for the region and for Europe more generally today?
