1 CPN Declaration of Believers for Peace Forum Believers for Peace Ana Raffai, peace activist
Amra Pandžo, peace activist
Radenko Solaja, peace activist
Croatia The Declaration of Believers for Peace was created after 8 years of work by the interreligious group “Believers for Peace” whose members are from Southeast Europe.  The intention of the Declaration is to define the values and actions for positive peace that “Believers for Peace” strives for.  This forum is one in a series held across Southeast Europe whose aim is to introduce individuals to the Declaration and invite them to sign it.  In this way we aim to highlight what individual believers are already doing and also call them to active engagement against violence and injustice.

4 CPN Storytelling from Religious Traditions to Develop Empathetic Understanding in Diverse Communities: Perspectives from UK Primary  Schools Centre for Religion in Society, York St John University, York, UK  Dr Paulina Kollontai,  Associate Director, Centre for Religion in Society, York St John University, York,  UK UK This workshop considers using stories from texts shared by the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam as a means to assist in bridge-building between diverse communities. This is looked at in the context of non-confessional religious education in UK schools located in towns and cities where there are very diverse religio-ethnic communities and where there has been, or is the potential for, the breakdown of social trust  and harmony. The aim is to explore and examine the pedagogical approach of using storytelling in this way; identify and discuss the currency (i.e. potential, limitations, obstacles) of using stories from sacred texts; and explore what skills can be developed through this activity in terms of nurturing values of mutual understanding, empathetic engagement and building social trust.

Guido Convents, SIGNIS (Bruxelles)
A representative of Pax Christi International (Bruxelles)
France  Les médias sont aujourd'hui au cœur de la vie et de la formation des jeunes. Il est essentiel qu'ils soient des vecteurs de la culture de non-violence et de paix et que les jeunes eux-mêmes aient la possibilité de devenir créateurs de media au service de la non-violence et de la paix.

8 CPN A culture of peace seen as a common public good: the stakes of multi-actor cooperation in conflict-solving situations Ecole de la paix Gal Hugues de Courtivron, former FORPRONU commander France From the European peoples' desire for a "never again" and the isolationist movement as a response to the horrors of massive, industrial-era war, a culture of peace has grown and developed with every outbreak of violence. Each crisis has acted as a step for an international community gathered around the search for peaceful means, ways, and methods to find a path toward a non-violent international society.
The culture of peace, as fostered by the contributive actions and inputs of various actors, will be reflected in the composition of this panel: civil society actors will engage in a discussion with representative of local and international institutions as well as former military personels.

Two groups will be the conflicting parties, the third group will play the journalists and will have to leave while the other groups ‘fight’. Afterwards they will have to gather information by interviewing the parties, through a press conference and by analyzing pictures of the conflict. In the end, the third group has to write a short article on the event. This ‘article’ will be discussed in class and will be followed by a short presentation on peace and war journalism. 
10 CPN Accompaniment and Nonviolent Resistance Fellowship of Reconciliation Peace Presence. Camargo, Candice, Director FOR Peace Presence , Michaela, International Accompanier
Colombia, South America Since the 1980s, beginning in Latin America but then spreading around the world, from Albania to the Philippines and Kenya, protective accompaniment is used to improve the human security of activists and human rights defenders in dangerous situations the world over. It has proved to be very successful in certain situations, and less applicable in others. It tries to utilize international privilege structures in a way which protects the underprivileged, and tries to avoid interfering in local processes with foreign paradigms. This workshop looks at the ways international protective accompaniment works in theory and in practice, its strengths and drawbacks, and is led by practicioners.

15 CPN Education for a culture of peace IPB   Switzerland The culture of peace concept and program was developed by UNESCO in the 1990ies in cooperation with a number of individuals, institutions and organizations. The program was embraced by the UN which made the year 2000 the International Year for a Culture of Peace, followed by the International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World. The UNESCO Manifesto 2000 on a culture of peace was signed by some 75 million people. This broad movement was, however    stopped short by the 11. September 2001 events and the ensuing fight against terrorism. IPB, with partners, would like to organize a workshop in Sarajevo to discuss strategies for a possible renewal of the movement from a culture of violence and war towards a culture of peace. How do we change militaristic mindsets and policies? Why is ”the world” seemingly willing to pay the costs of war and not the costs of peace. Are we losing our humanistic values? Are we too preoccupied with short-term gains and competition?  How do we bring the culture of peace vision into the world of real-politics?

24   Conflict as a tool for social transformation  Modus Operandi for conflict transformation  Claske Dijkema, coordinator France Short presentation of the argument (maximum 500 chars): While peace and conflict may be seen as opposite realities we argue that stagnation and not conflict is the opposite of peace. Conflict is often associated with violence and destruction. Although we do not deny its destructive potential conflict may be necessary to address asymmetric power relations that are considered as inequitable. In this workshop we will explore the constructive potential of conflict in addressing social injustice. 
25   Tools to analyze and transform conflictive relationships  Modus Operandi for conflict transformation  Claske Dijkema, coordinator France Modus Operandi asked 7 organisations working towards peace to reflect on their field experience and to schematize their approach with the objective of developing innovative analytical tools. The question of how to build constructive relationships is at the heart of most approaches as these are part of the problem in conflict but also key to a solution. During the workshop we will explore together how the work of these organisations impacts the relationships between the actors in conflict.

This will lead to a discussion on the role of academic studies in supporting the development of such competencies. This topic is an emerging one and we envisage the workshop as part of creating a European network.

29 CPN The Role of Faith, Faith Based Organisations and Peace Building PAX CHRISTI  IPB Amra Pandžo, Bosnia & Herzegovina; Fr. Neles Tebay, West Papua; Fr. Dr. Mario Bernadic, Bosnia & Herzegovina;   
Convener: Dr. Mustafa Ali, Board Member Pax Christi International, Kenia.
Germany Faith and peacebuilding refers to the role of religion in the development of peace. It is stated that religion has been, at different points in history, both advantageous and ruinous to the promotion of peace. We can categorize three models of approaches. The first is “peace through religion alone”. This proposes to attain world peace through devotion to a given religion. Opponents claim that advocates generally want to attain peace through their particular religion only and have little tolerance of other ideologies. The second model, a response to the first, is “peace without religion”. Critics claim that it is overly simplistic and fails to address other causes of conflict as well as the peace potential of religion. It is also said that this model excludes the many contributions of religious people in the development of peace. The third approach is “peace with religion”. This approach focuses on the importance of coexistence and interfaith dialogue. Religion is neither inherently good nor bad for peace, and that its influence is undeniable. Peace with religion, then, emphasises promoting the common principles present in every major religion.
Faith-based NGOs are very often locally-based, they have immediate influence within that community. It is important to promote indigenous ownership of conflict prevention and peacebuilding initiatives as early in the process as possible. Faith-based NGOs also carry moral authority that contributes to the receptivity of negotiations and policies for peace.
The workshop will reflect upon different experiences from people on the ground and come to some conclusions and lessons learned for the future.

As his media director I knew him as my employer, minister and friend. Since then I have been trying to make the Dream a global reality through nonviolence training and actions in conflict situations in Europe.

The aim was to support female witnesses of warcrimes and to create a network of womens' organisations and institutions for more witness protection and support. The presentation illustrates important steps of dealing with the past and describes why this process is especially important for women. One part of the project "Breaking the Silcence" was the workshop "Working with Emotions" which will be presented in part two of the event. 
54 GWP Violence extrème et / ou violence ordinaire Armes nucléaires Stop /  Initiative Féministe Européenne (IFE-EFI) / IAMFPGN (IPPNW-France)  Dominique Lalanne (Armes nucléaires STOP), Lilian Halls-French  Initiative Féministe Européenne (IFE-EFI ), Abraham Béhar (AMFPGN-IPPNW-France)    All forms of violence are interrelated and mutually reinforcing. Pacifists, we affirm that weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons, are the top of a pyramid whose base rests on the ordinary violence everyone faces. Feminists, we ask that the daily violence, structural against women has to be seen as a political issue and must be integrated into the policies of States. We will show the connection between the peace and anti-militarist movement  and the feminist movement, to conclude that a common work is a necessity to effectively fight against all types of violence in our societies.
55 GWP Women in the the process of peace negociations IFE / EFI and Peace Movement (Mouvement de la Paix) Jeannick Lepretre, General Delegate, Mvt de la Paix, Lian Halls French, Co Présidente  IFE /EFI France Obstacles et défis politiques et socio culturels  auxquels sont
confrontées les femmes pour faire entendre leur voix dans les   processus de sortie des conflits                                                                    Political and sociocultural obstacles and challenges facing womn trying to make their voices heard in conflict transformation processes.  
56 GWP Women Workshop “Which cultural changes are necessary to give women their dignity and freedom back?” No to War - No to NATO Kristine Karch, Ingeborg Breines, Claudia Haydt Germany Violence against women, gender-injustice, suppression, and (pubic) invisibility of women have different causes in religious and cultural traditions. War and militarization with their inherent hierarchical structures and violence, dominated by males, destroy existing “freiräume” (free space) of women and communities, respect and dignity of all people are gone.
On the other side in post conflict situations women are the first working in reconciliation and rebuilding communities.
In the workshop we should discuss our request to a peaceful, gender justice, non-violent society, where women are visible in the public and integrated in decision making and responsibilities, a society with respect and dignity for all human beings independent of their religion, tradition, colors and origin.
57 GWP Gender mainstreaming peacebuilding initiatives PATRIR (Peace Action, Training and Research Institute of Romania) Cseke Bianca  Italy Peacebuilding is one of the fields in which women and minority groups are slightly underrepresented and many states still face many challenges in regard to women’s participation in peacebuilding processes. Without specific attention to gender issues, peacebuilding initiatives risk to be inefficient or, even worse, to aggravate gender discrimination and perpetuate inequality. The session has the goal of providing the participants with the necessary tools to integrate “gender lenses” in youth work and to encourage them to develop a gender-aware approach to peacebuilding initiatives and youth work.
58 GWP The social construction of gender roles  Snaga Zene Sanja Petrović, Psychologist,   Sabina Duman, Psychologist BiH The aim of the workshop is to familiarize participants with the concept of gender (through the establishment of a difference between sex and gender), and the ways in which our society sees the role of women and men. The workshop will be realized through several steps: Exercise - "The mission of the planet Earth", the reflection on the exercise, differences in speech and behavior of women and men, social construction of gender roles and discussion.
59 GWP Women's Power to stop the war - historical and actual strategies to organize peace Wilpf/Women's international league for peace and freedom Irmgard Hofer (WILPF Germany+N.N.WILPF Bosnia);                          Helen Kay (WILPF UK, Annalisa Milani, Italy) Germany Since its establishment in 1915, WILPF Women worked internationally for Peace with an overall women’s perspective. With an international delegation, we present the powerful and still actual resolutions from the Women's congress in 1915 on disarmament, violence against women, equality, post conflict solutions, peace education, women's participation in democracy. Following the relevance of these radical requests to stop war we discuss strategies in today's politics and ongoing conflicts with the aim to avoid and prevent war, to implement (transitional) justice and promote the participation of women according to UNres1325.
60   Womens Activities around the NATO Summit in Wales       2014 September Women network no to war - no to NATO kristine karch   At September 4th and 5th 2014 the next NATO Summit will take place in Newport Wales. The peace movement in Wales and internationally are preparing actions against this Summit.
NATO is not an organization for promoting peace, non-violence, ecological, social, cultural and gender justice, see its engagement in Afghanistan, Africa and its behavior in the Ukraine crises. In contradiction it is increasing militarization of societies, new arms races and worldwide military bases. NATO is a threat for Peace and Justice in Europe and in the world. The peace movement is planning a counter summit, a demonstration and other actions of civil disobedience and many more activities in Wales around the summit. We should discuss what specific common actions from women should take place in Wales and elsewhere to show that women say No to War no to NATO. Some proposals are: workshops on the counter summit, women block on the demonstration, Die in, actions in our communities to inform about NATO and NATO summit , other actions.. In this meeting we should discuss what we can to bring the gender issue into the activities and to make voices for gender justice and women rights in a world without war visible.

BSC The academic conference on women’s participation in armed conflict represents a unique opportunity to deconstruct standard thinking about the role of women in 1992-1995 war and reinstate the  place of women in these and other conflicts. This would provide an opportunity to close the gender gap linked to war that represents one of the most consistent in the public opinion. It will provide opportunity for many international academics, artists and female war veterans to discuss and exchange ideas, experiences, research methodology, research approaches, historical material, war records, and review literature related to the theme of Women and armed conflict. The conference will be open to young researchers working on related subjects.The specific objectives of the conference are as follows:
1. Highlight the need for re-thinking women linkages to war and the need of academic approach to this subject.
2. Give an overview on international/regional researches done on a subject, highlight their conclusions.
3. Present an overview of the major obstacles in relation to women in war conditions and its aftermath
4. Discuss the difficulties faced by researchers while working on this subject, identify success/facilitating factors and way forward;
5. Collect recommendations and possible options for the further development of research on the subject.
6. Nurture possible synergies among participants from different countries and backgrounds and encourage further collaboration with an open perspective on non-European conflicts.
7. The proceedings of this conference will be published.

We want also take advantage of the workshop to work towards a network of organizations about military spending in Europe
70 MA Workshop  Abolition of nuclear weapons organizes by cnd may be with partners CND, IALANA, INES, IPB Reiner Braun, Dave Webb Germany There are two nuclear weapons states (NWS) in Europe. Like the other NWS, France and GB are modernizing these weapons. Still around 17,000 nuclear weapons exist on our planet. A small portion can terminate all human life.
Despite the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) the danger of proliferation of nuclear weapons exists. This danger is being instrumentalized to pursue other interests.
What can be done to free the planet of this horrifying threat 100 years after the first use of (chemical) weapons of mass destruction? A model Nuclear Weapons Convention (NWC) to abolish nuclear weapons has been written; it is lying on the table of international politics as an official UN Document. How can the NWC be implemented?
71 MA Civil Peace Services in Europe: the results we achieved, the challenges we faced, the future we shape”. European Network for Civil Peace Service   Italy Civil Peace Services (CPS) are civil society driven intervention initiatives aiming to reduce  violence in conflict areas. In different countries the CPS concept has slightly different connotations and different level of Institutional recognition.
During the workshop the European Network for Civil Peace Services (EN.CPS) - as international network of NGOs with the common goal of promoting CPS both at national level and towards European institutions - will shine a light upon the CPS state-of-art in different countries, analysing the scenarios with the relative critical aspects and finally reflect about possible developments at European level.
72 MA Alternatives to military and war – the concepts of civilian-based defence and civil peace-keeping Federation for Social Defence (BSV) / War Resisters’ International Dr. Christine Schweitzer Germany To overcome war, it is necessary to develop alternatives to certain functions that the military assumes today. Especially two concepts are worth considering: Civilian-based defence (social defence) as an alternative to military defence, and civilian peace-keeping as an alternative to protect civilians in situations of war and violence without resorting to arms. The workshop will present these two concepts and their underlying guiding principles of nonviolent action, familiarize participants with examples of each, and discuss their relevance for situations today – preferably based on suggestions coming from the participants.

74 MA Seminar “Militarization of Science 1914 and today” INES Reiner Braun, Lucas Wirl, Dave Webb, Jean Paul Laine, Moderation: Jeannine Dressler Germany Wars have not and will not be possible without science, technological developments, and the skills of engineers. World War I has been a quantum leap in the respect of military technology in the fields of science, technology and engineering. Today, we face another military-technological revolution: the development of drones is a step towards the development of automatization and robotization of war fare. The role of humans in war fare is getting redefined.
Can this revolution be stopped? What is the relationship of science and peace? How can science, research, and teaching be utilized and developed for solely peaceful means?
75   Militarism and alternatives Helsinki Citizens' Assembly-Vanadzor  Sakunts Artur, chairman of Helsinki Citizens’ Assembly Vanadzor Armenia The workshop goal is to present the participants with the introduction of militarism and its principles, so that the participants are able to evaluate militarism and to know the criteria of evaluation. They will  discuss several topics related to militarism, in particular the possible impact of militarism and militarism as a challenge for a democratic country, for the formation of democratic institutes and their effective functioning, for the internal and external relations; the role of armed forces in a democratic country and the principles of their formation in relation to other structures; the civil control institutions, ways and means of civil control over armed forces, etc.   
76 MA "1914-2014: Europe in between War and Peace – Requirements to a sustainable and peaceful Europe in the 21st century” MAYORS FOR PEACE, INES, IPB, IALANA Tarja Kronberg, Burkhard Schneider(City of Hannover), Aaron Tovish (M4P 2020 Vision Campaign),  Germany World War I started in Europe – the European great powers waged war over hegemony in the world.
2014 the European Union aims to be the „leading technological power in the world”. EU participates in wars and international interventions while claiming to be a “civil force”. In 2013 the EU received the Nobel Peace Prize.
The governments of EU agreed to a „permanent armament“, a common armament-agency, and a common armament politics in the Lisbon Treaty. Nevertheless, they again and again highlight the peaceful orientation of EU.
In which direction does Europe – which is more than just the EU – develop? Which ideas do politics pursue and which demands are articulated by the peace movement? Which challenges does a civil Europe face in a globalized world and how can peace and development be shaped?
These are questions for a controversial debate in a round table with politicians and people of civil society: Organizes by mayors for peace , INES, IPB, IALANA
77 MA Disarmement and developement -Art 26 Mouvement (Le) de La Paix Du Souich, Co Président, Cédric Dumarais France  Cet atelier consistera à mettre en rapport les sommes investies dans les dépenses militaires et le sous financement des programmes de coopération internationaux répondant aux besoins humains.

78 MA Conference “NATO 2014: It talks of peace but wages war” No to War - No to NATO Lucas Wirl, Joseph Gerson, AFSC, Dave Webb, CND, Gojko Raicevic, No to War – No to Nato Montenegro, Claudia Haydt, Information Centre Militarization, Walter Baier, Ludo de Brabander, vrede vzw., Belgium, Kristine Karch, No to NATO, Tobias Pflüger, Left Party Germany, Erhard Crome, RLS, Germany, Reiner Braun/ Pascal Luig, IALANA/ IPB, Germany, Ingeborg Breines (IPB), Aurelie Royon (Mouvement de la Paix) Germany The military alliance NATO is expanding – geographically and in terms of content. NATO claims right to global interventions – with or without mandate of the United Nations – and to hold nuclear weapons as last while threatening to use them against nuclear weapons states. It externalizes defense, defines encompassing security threats and thereby militarizes civil fields of politics such as migration, poverty and want as well as climate change.
In a half-day-conference an analysis of the military and interventionist alliance as well as alternatives to global and regional security structures should be made. In a globalized limited world the concept of military security does not meet the needs of the people. Other forms of cooperation and other concepts of security need to be applied.
79 MA Stop the Arms Trade Pax Christi - Deutsche Sektion Christine Hoffmann, secretary general of pax christi Germany and spokesperson of the campain „Aktion Aufschrei – Stoppt den Waffenhandel!“ Germany This workshop intends to network between all those who act against arms trade in their countries.

What are the challenges and opportunities? What can be done by faith based organisations in campaigning for disarmament towards sustainable development?
81 MA New Wars in the Middle East  Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Southeast Europe Mamdouh Habashi (Co-Founder of the Egyptian Socialist Party), Claudia Haydt (Executive Board of the European Left Party and Information Centre Militarisation), Paul Lancu (Pax Christi international)  Belgrade, Serbia In the last decade we have had the wars of the West in Afghanistan, in Iraq, in Libya and the danger of war against Iran. After the “Arab Spring” there was a big hope for a better future also for the people in the Middle East. Freedom, democracy and human rights for the people. These were the ideas. But at the end we see the war in Syria, big tensions in Lebanon, Egypt and other countries. The uprising of millions on June 30th 2013 in Egypt led to the fall of the Muslim Brotherhood. Was it the beginning a new wave of the revolution, since the January 25th 2011 revolution has not ceased? Or a new wave of tensions?
82 MA Rosa Luxemburg and World War I  Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Southeast Europe Dr. Holger Politt (RLS), other speaker to be confirmed ,                    Chair: Reiner Braun (Co-President of IPB)  Chair: Dr. Erhard Crome (RLS) Belgrade, Serbia Rosa Luxemburg (1871 –1919) was a Marxist theorist, philosopher, economist and revolutionary socialist of Polish Jewish descent who became a naturalized German citizen. She was a key figure of the antiwar movement during World War I. With French socialist Jean Jaurès, she argued that European workers' parties should organize a general strike if war broke out. In the Workshop we will discuss Rosa Luxemburg’s thinking on war and imperialism and the left position against war, looking on 1914 from the view of 2014.
83 MA 100 Years of World War I - The Socialist Anti-War Movement and the Idea of the Balkan Federation Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung Southeast Europe Dr. Husnija Kamberović (Director of the Institute for History in Sarajevo); Andreja Živković (Historian); Miloš Jadžić (Sociologist); Dr. Fritz Weber (Historian); Yiannis Glarnetatzis (Historian)  Belgrade, Serbia The Workshop has four purposes: (1) Introduction into the complex situation in the Balkans on the eve of World War I and show how the socialist movement positioned itself. (2) Discussion of the interaction between Balkan socialists and the anti-war movement in other European countries. It will also discuss the relation between the ideas of a Socialist Balkan Federation and the Austro-Marxists about socialist nationality politics. (3) It will explore the political significance and emancipatory heritage of the anti-war movement for the left in the region. (4) It will try to contribute to an emancipatory narrative against revisionist reinterpretations of World War I in the Balkans.
84 MA Moving from militaristic science to science for peace: lessons from the UK  Scientists for Global Responsibility SGR (UK) Dr Stuart Parkinson, Executive Director United Kingdom UK government funding of military research and development (R&D) has long been among the highest in the world. This presentation will discuss data revealed in a new in-depth report by Scientists for Global Responsibility on the billions spent by the UK government on continuing to develop nuclear weapon systems and other Cold War-style ‘offensive’ weaponry. This will be compared with UK public spending on R&D focused on understanding and tackling the roots of conflict and the longer term security threats that we face from climate change, resource scarcity and other global problems. It will be argued that security-related R&D should be based on a radical rethink of UK defence and security policy, and that this could act as a catalyst for change at an international level. 
85 MA The role of Algerian scientists in the national reconciliation process  Syndicat national des chercheurs permanents, Algeria Smati ZOGHB      I Fatiha SAHNOUNE Algerie La réconciliation nationale, processus vécu et la communauté scientifique en Algérie :la communauté scientifique a été durement  touchée par les années de sang pendant la décennie 91-2001. C'est ainsi qu'elle a perdu les meilleurs de ses fils. Malgré ce lourd tribut, cette communauté n'a pas tardé à réagir favorablement au processus de réconciliation national. Nos deux interventions se veulent une tentative d'explication de cette réaction.                   National reconciliation, lived process and the scientific community in Algeria: The scientific community was severely hit by the bloody years of 91-2000. That’s how they lost their best sons. Despite this heavy tribute, this community did not take a long time to react favorably to the national reconciliation process. Our two workshops aim at explaining this reaction.

86 MA The involvement of foreign soldiers in the local battlefield UNIAlter / Les YMCA du Québec Sandra Barancira (UQO – Observatoire de l’actualité internationale, Canada)  Francesca Valenti (McGill University/YMCA, Canada) Canada The phenomenon of foreign soldiers has become widespread as new contexts of asymmetric warfare have come into being.  Today, countries concerned by the potential return of young fighters are increasing their protection measures, as is the case in Canada with its new citizenship law.  However, if we chose prevention instead?  Where do these youth emerge from?  Why do they decide to take up arms in favour of a cause unrelated to their lives?  Starting at local levels and moving towards the global scene, there are so many questions that need to be taken into account to understand this phenomenon and consider peaceful alternatives.     
87 MA Rise of militaristic ideology in Canada UNIAlter / Les YMCA du Québec Émilie Beauchesne (Fédération des femmes du Québec)  Jacqueline Romano-Toramanian (Établissements verts Brundtland EVB-CSQ) Canada Canada, which has increased its military spending 50% since 2000, largely diffuse a militaristic ideology within its population. How this militarist ideology manifests itself in Canada. Issue of military training and recruitment campaigns of the army in schools. How oppose this logic a program of awareness and peace training for youth who demonstrated that another world is possible and that proves that we have the power to change things for a more peaceful world (example of movement Brundtland Green Establishments of the Central union of Quebec, EVB-CSQ).
88 MA AFRICOM go home, Foreign bases out of Africa - A geopolitical documentary (film presentation) UNIAlter / Les YMCA du Québec Aziz S. Fall (GRILA) Canada AFRICOM GO HOME exposes the machinations of both imperialism and neo-colonialism and shows how they operate to coopt our elites and military leaders as well as civil society organizations. It paints a picture of the damage to which Africans are exposed when military bases take up residence in their midst. However, this film is an appeal for more self-determination and balance in Africa’s development. It calls for the reemergence of progressive wings of African states as well as a plan for accelerating panAfrican integration within the context of internationalism and a polycentric world that upholds all of humanity’s common “good”.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-HLjrzVHWPM

But it did not prevent wars accompanying the breakup of the Yugoslav federation, or was not able to just and lasting peace in its neighborhood in the Middle East, the Caucasus, and Africa.The establishments of the rule of law, deepening democracy, good governance and the fight against corruption have been the guiding principles for the European policies.  With what results?

France The destruction of social ownership in the former Yugoslav titoist system was associated with the dismantling of the Federation: new “nation-states” and nationalist bourgeoisies were competing to control the privatisation process in the largest, possible territory  - through a very unjust, illegitimate and inefficient process leading to different kinds of destructive wars : social justice associated to social ownership, was remplaced by nationalist conflicts, partitocracy and market competition to control the benefits of privatisations.  We will argue that the Euro-atlantic institutions played the role of pyroman-firemen. 
98   The wars in Yugoslavia in the 1990s as a phase in the continuation of economic changes Centar za slobodarska istraživanja Vuk Bačanović, historian and journalist at weekly newspaper “Dani”; Marko Radovanović, economist; Nedim Klipo, leftist political activist and member of "Centar za slobodarska istraživanja"   Presenting an account of the Yugoslav tragedy with an analyses of the roots and destructive dynamic of the Yugoslav crisis, focusing on an understanding of the interaction of many national and international factors - socio-economic and political, past and present – showing that the war was not at all inevitable, that it is not the irresistible consequence of "centuries-old hatreds", that it was wanted by forces who needed it to establish their power. A multi-causal explanation of the conflict, discussing the different analyses and assigning the different responsibilities.
99 PSJ Dette et guerre économique  Comité pour l’Annulation de la Dette du Tiers-Monde (CADTM) Franchet. Pascal,  Marlène Tuininga et Christine Van Den Daelen  France Economic interests are very often the real causes triggering conflict (land grabbing, natural resources looting policies to the benefit of multinational corporations) with their heavy consequences for populations (underdevelopment, poverty, hunger) and the planet (irreversible ecological damage,…). 
To the same extent, the social disintegration caused by austerity programmes led in the name of excessive debts, in the North or in the South, are the ferment of ideological regressions conducive to a build-up of warlike intrigues and an upsurge of nationalism and xenophobia.
Through concrete examples, we offer to demonstrate that the debt system, economical stakes and war strategies are closely linked. Answers and mobilisations have to integrate these various factors into a joint struggle.

101 PSJ Energy for Peace Simulation Game EN-PAZ Jenny Becker Germany The fictional country of Kalatia has to deal with various problems since it
gained its independence from
the fictional Republic of Ragasia.
Ethnic unrest, a difficult economic situation, migration and a high unemployment rate are just some
of these problems. In addition, the
energy supply of Kalatia is also
not guaranteed in various regions
of the country. This simulation
game is dealing with the relations between energy security, envi-
ronmental protection and conflict dynamics. A special emphasis is
placed on the question whether renewable energy can contribute
to conflict prevention in Kalatia
and in general.
102 PSJ Exland and Bergistan EN-PAZ Jenny Becker Germany The fictional country
Exland is on the brink of
war. The poor region of
Bergistan wants to gain
independence from Exland
as they feel underprivi-
leged by the government
of Exland. Bergistan is
abundant with resources,
but hasn’t got any share
of prosperity. Here, the people work as farmers, are uneducated and have les-ser job opportunities, though Exland’s economy is growing. The govern- ment focusses on the support of the industrialists and the city residents. To stop the claims for inde- pendence, Exland sent troops to Bergistan.
103 PSJ The Last Dictator EN-PAZ Jenny Becker Germany he fictional country of Schoenesia is sup- posed to be the last dictatorship in the fic- tional mainland of Orepua. The impact on civil and social life is radical. Freedom of press does not exist nor is there a landscape of political parties. Furthermore, the eco- nomy is going downhill and the
people are suffering shortages.
However, there is a vivid under-
ground activist scene in Schoen-
esia. Despite a strictly enforced
curfew, illegal pamphlets cir-
cullate, underground meetings
are taking place and undercover
action against public institutions
is happening daily. The regime
reacts in a violent manner: pris-
on, torture or death penalty is
present always. But dissatisfac-
tion against the regime is grow-
ing from day to day
104 PSJ AN INTERNET FOR PEACE  Finnish Peace Union / Mikael Böök   Finland Is the internet something that people can do something about? How to make ”cyberpeace” instead of ”cyberwar”?  In Snowden's time, everybody must have given these questions some thought. The time is ripe for them to be discussed at the social forums and in the peace movement. The subject is overdue and is likely to be burning after the multi-stakeholder Conference on Internet Governance, which is scheduled to take place in Brazil in April, 2014. Themes of the workshop: ”Internet governance?” ; ”Library power?” ; ”Alliance with the free software community.”

107 PSJ Environmental contamination through conflict: toxic remnants of war from WWI to the Balkans IALANA, ICBUW, INES Andrew Garrity, Dr Domagoj Vidosavljevic, David Cullen, Prof. Manfred Mohr, IALANA Germany. Germany Attention is increasingly being focused on the long-term impact on civilian health of environmental contamination resulting from conflict. Many substances in use by militaries, from heavy metals to explosives and obscurants are recognised as hazardous during peacetime and their use or dispersal is regulated. At present few controls exist on the military use of these materials, even in areas where civilian populations may be at risk of long-term exposure. While materials such as depleted uranium and the Vietnam-era defoliant Agent Orange are comparatively well studied, less attention has been paid to a host of other potentially hazardous materials and state obligations for detailed post-conflict environmental assessment and remediation are poorly defined. The Toxic Remnants of War Project www.toxicremnantsofwar.info was established to investigate the extent of contamination and the risks it poses to civilians.

109 PSJ From tragedy to prevention: how the health consequences of war can help maintain peace Medact Judith Cook                 Marion Birch London The true health consequences of WW1 will probably never be known; but all wars have shown that information on the health costs of conflict is vital to meet needs and inform policy makers and the public.
Medact has extensive experience in documenting the health effects of conflict, and wrote a report anticipating the health consequences of the invasion of Iraq. Medact is now applying the methodology of health impact assessment (HIA) to estimate the health consequences of military action when it is under discussion and these estimates can influence decisions.
The workshop will discuss how anticipated health costs can be used to prevent military action and whether HIA is one way to do this.

The relationship between access to healthcare and population security will be explored in two ways; not only are conflicts as such barriers for access to healthcare, but lack of a universal system is also a mean to maintain individuals in a vulnerable state regarding their health and to maintain inequities. Using case studies, various alternatives will be discussed in terms of their potential for reducing health inequities.

It is Ban Ki Moon who says so. Governments spent USD 1'730 billion in 2012 supporting the military sector. This is money that could be better spent tackling the real challenges to human survival. The challenge to civil society is to build up our movement so that we can have enough impact on the politicians for them to change course. The workshop will hear from experts and activists working on this very important project, and formulate plans for future work.
126 PSJ Labor and Community:  Powerful Protests!  Potential Alliances? Kirsten Snow Spalding Kirsten Snow Spalding   The February 2014 protests in Tuzla began as labor protests--sparked by layoffs, plant closures and unfair labor practices.  But as the protests grew to include people who are not workers in unions, the focus of the protests shifted to what’s wrong with the economy, what’s wrong with the political system, and what it would take to change the fabric of society so that everyone in Tuzla might prosper.  Today, the Tuzla Plenum includes union leaders, union members, unemployed youth and adults, students, academics, business people, seniors, political party members, community activists and unaffiliated individuals.  What is the potential for this citizens forum to organize into a labor and community coalition for real change?

They will share their journey and then create a safe place for questions, sharings or responses. Every time they speak people are impacted and begin a new conversation about reconciliation, dialogue, forgiveness, healing, re-humanising the other.

Convenors: Anton Balog and Katarina Kruhonja, Croatia, Board Members Pax Christi International.
Germany A violent conflict or war influences the lifes and future of many generations. After an open conflict, the “other” is sometimes seen as the “enemy.” Overcoming violence and healing of wounds takes time and energy. In many cases, societies have to go through a process of talking to one other, telling their stories, expressing their pain and suffering, trying to find ways in the direction of reconciliation and living together. Transitional justice refers to a range of approaches that people use to deal with the legacies of widespread or systematic human rights abuses as they attempt to move from a period of violent conflict or oppression towards peace, harmony, democracy and respect for human rights. Transitional justice is a way of looking at contemporary problems that are the consequences of a violent past in order to consolidate a new peaceful, harmonious and democratic society. The workshop will address the question of what is required to sustain and build integrative, direct, bottom-up, inspirational, and empowering comprehensive processes of transformative justice with particular focus on the role of civil society/citizens, women in particularly.

144 RDP Respect for diversity and non violent conflict resolution in early years Pomoc deci 1. Vasić Ljiljana, Director at Pomoć deci (Serbia)
2. Jones Ingrid, Director at Partner per Femijet (Partners for children) (Albanija)
BSC General attitude that young children do not notice differences, show no prejudice and do not have discriminatory behavior is challenged by the research that shows that children as young as three years of age notice differences very well and that at the age of six, one in six children has negative, discriminatory comments about those who do not belong to the child’s community in the segregated societies. Therefore, the right moment to start learning to respect diversity is in the early childhood. At the same time, parents and teachers still have the strongest influence on a child’s attitudes so that they can significantly influence development of empathy, willingness to include and respect those who are different. Non -governmental organizations in cooperation with educational institutions can develop and implement programmes for teachers to work with both parents and children.

Spain “Strands of peace” are the feats of hands stretched to help and rescue persons threatened or abused in times and situations marked by horror, terror, letal violence or sheer injustice for being considered enemies or aliens. These feats trespass the rules set by one's own constituency, and are motivated by unselfish reasons.

From 6 to 9 June 2014, an international meeting will takes place  in Sarajevothe Peace Event 2014, which will be an international exchange platform, for debate and information on different topics related to non-violence and peace. Thousands of people are expected there. This meeting will be based on conference and workshop allowing different peace activists from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Europe and around the world to share their experience and their challenge.

Sarajevo, Symbolic city for having been the theatre of the event triggering the First World War, one century ago, the city was also the martyr city of the War in Bosnia and Herzegovina, twenty years ago. Nevertheless, nowadays Sarajevo is the capital of a destroyed multicultural society, which is now being rebuilt, in the heart of a zone, where in each states, men and women strive to overcome the scars of wars that accompanied the break-up of the Former Yugoslav federation.

That is the reason why we would like to make it, in June 2014, a meeting place for peace.

Within this international meeting, will take place the First World Thematic Social Forum for Peace and Human Security, an international forum of Cities and communities for peace, events, cultural exhibits, a youth camp, and various thematic meetings.

An international organizing committee, which brings together various Bosnian and international organizations, was established in September 2012 and the mobilization for this meeting has since grown in Bosnia and Herzegovina, in neighboring countries and in several countries in Europe.

The international committee defined the outlines of the Peace Event and all the organizations who wish to participate will be invited to offer concrete proposals for round-table, workshops, exhibitions and cultural activities related to these topics.

The first step is this present call to proposals for workshops.

We are waiting to hear from you if you have any questions,
