PRIF Annual Conference 2022. Contrust: Peace Politics and Trust in Conflict.

The 2022 PRIF Annual Conference will debate and analyze the topic of trust and its relation with peace politics from a multitude of perspectives.Trust is a central but often underestimated resource in international relations. It is an important prerequisite for resolving conflicts and at the same time conflict is a process in which trust can be formed. The war in Ukraine is an example of how trust can be destroyed in a short time, in international relations and in the international order.

The 2022 Annual Conference “ConTrust: Trust in Conflict – Peace Politics under Conditions of Uncertainty” will debate and analyze the topic of trust and its relation with peace politics from a multitude of perspectives. The conference will explore questions of what facilitates the building and solidification of trust between different actors and institutions, and how trust and conflict relate to each other. Based on the project “ConTrust”, a joint research initiative between PRIF and Goethe University, it will be argued that even in constellations of conflict, certain conditions can enable trust to be built. The concept will be examined not only with a focus on different regional perspectives, but also with a view towards the role of (international) organizations and the important part trust plays in arms control settings. Professor Dr. Nicole Deitelhoff, Executive Director of the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (Leibniz-Institut Hessische Stiftung Friedens- und Konfliktforschung/HSFK), is in charge of the conference.
