Europe and its Neighbourhood 2019: Conflict Prevention and Crisis Management in the 21st Century

Chatham House | 10 St James's Square | London | SW1Y 4LE

10 December 2019

International Crisis Group is hosting its fifth annual conference, Europe and its Neighbourhood: Conflict Prevention and Crisis Management in the 21st Century, in partnership with Chatham House and Al Sharq Forum.

At a time of uncertainty for Europe’s political ideals and its vision for a common future, its ability to shape and influence developments in its neighbouring regions is a more open question than at any time in the recent past. This year’s discussions will bring together perspectives from across Europe and neighbouring regions to discuss:

  • Europe’s leadership and policy direction amid increased geopolitical rivalry and competition for influence
  • Conflict prevention and responses to current and potential conflicts in neighbouring regions
  • Spotlight on regional developments and implications for European leaders
