The project Conditions of Peace commenced in the autumn 2019 to consider the Schuman Declaration and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, in light of the cracks that were already evident in politics and society in Europe and the European Union. These were visible already in the rejection of the European Constitution in 2007, the lack of economic solidarity during the 2007-8 economic crisis and especially the handling of the Greek crisis, in Brexit, the raise of the right wing parties and movements, as well as the Yellow Vest and pension protest in France, the migration crisis, Extinction Rebellion, Fridays for the Future, etc.

ROUND TABLE I, 1st of October, at 7 p.m.: DOES PEACE HAVE A FUTURE? (in English)

”Inequality is rising within the EU, and the distrust with representational politics is expressing itself in various forms of civic unrest and generates deep polarizations at all levels of our society. We can see that Brexit endangers the Good Friday Agreement and we can conclude: our political economy can drag us into armed conflicts, uprisings and wars.”

Moderation: Alexander Nikolic (curator – Conditions of Peace) with Noa Treister (curator Conditions of Peace) , Monika Mokre (Political Scientist), Jan Niggemann (Educational Scientist), u.a.

ROUND TABLE II, 8th of October, at 5 p. m.: FIGHT FOR YOUR (HUMAN) RIGHTS? (in English)

”There is a set of liberal ideas, by some perceived as “mainstream dictatorship” on the use of language to name and label all various kind of minorities and their representation. Very often these rights, which were gained as well in civil unrests and struggles, are as well used internationally, and within the EU to identify who is and who can be part of our cultural family. These achievements are in a sharp contrast, if we take a look at how workers and migrants are treated. Will there be justice in future and how?”

Moderation: Noa Treister (curator – Conditions of Peace) with Alexander Nikolic (curator – CoP; live via Zoom from Helsinki) and students of the MA program Applied Human Rights from the University of Applied Arts Vienna,u.a.
