"Islands of Agreement and Civility: Conflict Management in Russia’s War against Ukraine": Beitrag von Cindy Wittke

03.04.2023 Publikationen

The report "Islands of Agreement and Civility: Conflict Management in Russia’s War against Ukraine" by Cindy Wittke discusses the formation of "islands of civility" or "islands of agreement" as tools for conflict and disaster management in the protracted Russian war against Ukraine, and their significance for enabling complex multi-dimensional negotiations and settlements on the local, regional, and international levels.

Concepts of humanitarian negotiations, "islands of civility" and "islands of agreement", are tested and adapted by connecting them to five specific points of Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky’s 10-point peace plan. Short-term advantages and long-term pitfalls of turning to a conflict management approach and subsequent temporary, issue-specific conflict management agreements are analysed. Recommendations are provided for third parties whose goals are to prevent processes of political and legal destabilization and fragmentation, and to sustain Ukraine’s statehood.

In cooperation with PeaceRep Ukraine and the Conflict and Civicness Research Group at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
