POST-CONFLICT STATES AND SOCIETIES IN EUROPE
With the return of conflict to Europe in Ukraine and the continuation of conflicts near Europe’s borders as in Syria, essential questions for European security have re-emerged: how can conflicts be contained or resolved; how do post-conflict states and societies engage in the tasks of stabilization and reconstruction; how well or how poorly do post-conflict societies fare in creating the foundations for durable peace and prosperity; what lessons might European experiences bring to light for other conflicts around the world?
