A Selection of Texts

Edited by: Bruno Schoch, Andreas Heinemann Grueder, Corinna Hauswedell, Jochen Hippler, Margret Johannsen

The Peace Report is the joint yearbook of Germany's peace and conflict research institutes. It has been published in German annually since 1987, and in an abridged form in English since 2012. Researchers from various disciplines examine on-going international conflicts from the perspective of peace strategy. Their analyses form the basis of the editors' statement, which takes stock of pressing issues and formulates policy recommendations. This abridged English volume of the 2017 Peace Report explores how the US under Trump impacts transatlantic relations. It delves into such issues as: is the EU finished as a force for peace; how can bans on violence be implemented in practical terms while protecting people; and are sanctions of any use? Also highlighted is the importance of the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development when building global consensus in the face of blinkered nationalism. "The Peace Report" is published on behalf of the five German peace research institutes by Bruno Schoch, Andreas Heinemann-Grueder, Corinna Hauswedell, Jochen Hippler, and Margret Johannsen. It continues to be supported by the German Foundation for Peace Research.
