Peace Talks: Ceasefires in a Time of Covid-19
October 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
On 23 March 2020, the UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres called for an immediate global ceasefire, in order to tackle the threat of Covid-19, which is recognised as posing a disproportionate risk to those in fragile and conflict affected areas. In this event, we present insights from USIP and PSRP research tracking the causes and consequences of ceasefires declared during the Covid-19 pandemic and reflect on the potential of ceasefires to lead to a more sustainable peace process.
PSRP will present data and insights from the Covid-19 Ceasefire Tracker, and USIP will present its new report, Searching for COVID-19 Ceasefires: Conflict Zone Impacts, Needs, and Opportunities.
The event will take place from 13.00-14.00 (BST). The webinar will be held over Zoom, with joining links emailed to participants ahead of the event.
