In cooperation with three other peace research institutes (BICC/IFSH/PRIF), INEF publishes the annual Peace Report. In the report, scholars from various disciplines examine international conflicts from a peace-oriented perspective and offer strategic recommendations for policymakers. Thanks to its presentation at the Federal Press Conference in Berlin and its discussion in ministries, the Chancellery, Bundestag committees, parliamentary groups, and numerous media appearances, the Peace Report has received widespread attention in the political and public sphere.

Peace Report 2023: Peace Is a Long Way Off

Russia's war against Ukraine, pandemic, climate change and extreme weather events: More and more new crises are shaking societies around the world. At the same time, the number of violent conflicts is rising, often involving non-state, irregular militias and rebels. The Peace Report 2023 shows the scope for action that German policy-makers have in peace and security policy after the “Zeitenwende”. Central topics are increasing resilience in the Global South in the face of multiple crises and developing an approach to rethink arms control and protect against disinformation. The focus is also on the intelligent design of trade with inconvenient partners, the promotion of cooperative relations and the fight against the polarisation of democratic societies.
