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 2024: A Rudderless World

The global conflict situation has intensified further in the past year: the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, Russia's ongoing aggression against Ukraine as well as military coups and jihadist violence in Africa have claimed tens of thousands of victims. Military interventions in conflicts, on the other hand, have shown little success, and the fight against poverty and hunger is also faltering. Extremist movements are also putting pressure on democracies around the world. The Peace Report 2024 recommends initial steps to break through spirals of violence and address the causes of conflict.
