25 - 26 November 2020
Crisis Group invites you to join the annual Watch List Policy Dialogue, a series of roundtables discussing international crises, the drivers of hostility and causes of instability, and policy options to prevent, mitigate and help solve deadly conflicts.
After three editions with participation limited to European policy makers, Crisis Group’s Watch List Policy Dialogue will be open to policy practitioners, regional experts and diplomats working on peace and security from the European Union and its member states, civil society and international organisations.
This year, the dialogue will take place virtually over two days and will gather participants around five short and dynamic panel discussions on Kosovo/Serbia, Libya, the Sahel, Turkey, and the economic impact of COVID-19 in Latin America. Drawing from the analyses and recommendations presented in Crisis Group’s yearly issues of the EU Watch List – the Watch List 2020, and its May and September 2020 updates – Crisis Group analysts and expert panellists will discuss how the EU can play a stronger role in conflict prevention and peacebuilding, and address key policy challenges to generate stronger prospects for peace.
The event will be streamed live on Crisis Group’s Youtube channel. Below you will find a draft agenda with the topics of each session.
