2021 Watch List Policy Dialogue

Virtual

24 - 25 November 2021

14:00 – 17:00 CET (Brussels)

Register via this link. Or watch live on Crisis Group’s Youtube channel.

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. The event is 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 over two days in a virtual format, and will gather participants around four short and dynamic panel discussions on Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, Lebanon, and Venezuela. Drawing from the analyses and recommendations presented in Crisis Group’s yearly issues of the EU Watch List – the Watch List 2021, and its May and October 2021 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 meeting will be on the record and will be held online. Below you will find a draft agenda with the topics of each session. Participants can choose if they would like to attend the entire event or individual sessions.
