The war in Ukraine presents a fundamental challenge to the project of European integration, aimed at making war within Europe obsolete. The conflict also threatens the Ukrainian population’s aspirations to construct a political order and a civil society in accordance with traditional European norms and values. Two expert panels discussed Ukrainian peacemaking traditions, current conflict trends, and paths toward reconciliation.

Panel 2: War, Peacemaking, and Reconciliation in Ukraine | José Casanova, Volodymyr Turchynovskyy, Fr. Cyril Hovorun, Melanne Verveer (moderator)

The event is co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs and the International Institute for Ethics and Contemporary Issues of the Ukrainian Catholic University in L’viv.
