Under the auspices of the Bilbao international conference on conflict resolution. 11 to 13 November 2020

Events / Wed 11 Nov 2020 18:00

The roundtable panel on “he push for self-determination in Europe and the limits of the current framework of international conflict resolution“” is organised in the framework of a 3 days international conference on  Sovereignty Conflicts in Europe: Basis for a Solution.

In this event, and with the participation of a wide range of academic, institutional and socio-political partners, we aim to present the first steps and methodological foundation to draft a new international standard to resolve conflicts and territorial sovereignty disputes.

A network with more than 60 international renowned experts in various fields – law, policy, minority and collective rights, economy, history, international affairs and diplomacy – have started to design a toolkit for the resolution of sovereignty conflicts within states. Going forward we will work towards developing these ideas and sharing them with the relevant international actors for its implementation and to embedded into international law.

At a time when new definitions of sovereignty are emerging, we believe that this code, this methodology, can help to strengthen the European project, both from the point of view of reaffirming its founding values and from a pragmatic point of view, by contributing to its stability and to its governance. It will  strengthen the links and trust between citizens and their governing institutions.
