The topic of this year is the 'Innovative Ideas about Peace and War'. To make these evenings even more interesting the topic will be defied into the topic Peace on the first Thursday and the topic War on the second. On those evenings selected speakers will be present on the state of the art of conflict and peace studies and their practical implications. These TED-like talks are followed by a plenary session in which the audience gets the opportunity to pose their own critical questions for the speakers.
