Conflict and Fragility

Night of Conflict
15 - 16 Dec 2018

Powerplay & Underdogs: one year of the Netherlands in the UN Security Council

For full programme and ticketing see here.

The Netherlands held a seat in the UN Security Council in 2018 for one year. At the highest level we talked about war, peace and international security. How did we do? And what were the most important issues on the world stage? Find out during the Night of the Conflict, organised by Humanity House, National Theater and the Clingendael Institute.

During this festival we will dive into the complex world of conflictmanagement and international security. You will hear from high officials and diplomats, but also from biologists, philosophers, theater makers, soldiers and people from conflict countries how to work on peace & security.

For example, Sigrid Kaag, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, will discuss what the UN Security Council and the Netherlands can do in preventing conflicts, Victor Ochen from the African Youth Initiative Network will  tell his personal story and biologist Frans de Waal let's you think about the peace-loving and violent urges of people.

Another urgent question? Go speed-dating or take a seat at the bar with the speakers. Enough talk? Be surprised by art, experiment and theater from, among others, the National Theater.
