Preventing Conflict Today: Learning from the First World War
To coincide with the centennial of President Woodrow Wilson’s 'Fourteen Points', Chatham House and Meridian International Center will host a workshop to bring together practitioners, policymakers and the next generation of leaders, to discuss the lessons that have been learned from 1918, the 1919 Paris Peace Conference and the Treaty of Versailles and the subsequent slide into the Second World War.
Participants at this event will discuss the role of international institutions and multilateral efforts to resolve and prevent conflict today, examine how recent developments in the domain of cyber and communication technologies impact on conflict and on conflict prevention for the future, and deliberate on which of President Woodrow Wilson’s points are applicable today. The interactive discussion will also focus on developing a new set of recommendations for sustainable peace and conflict prevention in the 21st century.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
