DiCarlo on Ukraine: "This war is not only senseless, but exceedingly dangerous, and it touches all of us. It must end."
Political and Peacebuilding Affairs d. 24/8 - 2022
On 23 February 2022, this chamber heard impassioned pleas to avert a war in Ukraine. To no avail.
Today, exactly six months later, there is no end in sight to the conflict triggered by the Russian Federation’s invasion.
As we meet, the heaviest fighting is concentrated in the eastern Donbas region; in the south near Kherson and Zaporizhzhia; and in the north-east near Kharkiv. But virtually all corners of Ukraine are affected, and no one is out of reach of missile strikes.
At the same time, several attacks, conducted mainly with drones, have also been reported in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, occupied by the Russian Federation since 2014...
Today’s grim six-month anniversary coincides with Ukraine’s national day. This is an occasion to celebrate the country’s sovereignty and independence and proud heritage, and we congratulate the people of Ukraine on this day.
But let us recall that the human and material toll of the war is tragic, colossal and evident. First and foremost, for Ukraine and its people, and economic consequences for the world are ominous and growing.
The conflict is having another impact that, although less tangible, is just as perilous. In deepening global divisions and exacerbating mistrust in our institutions, the war is weakening the foundations of our international system.
The consequences of a breakdown in how the world manages questions of peace and security are frightening to contemplate.
This war is not only senseless, but exceedingly dangerous, and it touches all of us. It must end.

Claus Kold: Ukraine – The Need for A Global Peace Culture
TFF Associate d. 4/7-2022
All wars are different from other wars and, thus, it is impossible to use the experiences of one war to predict the course, end, and consequences of the next. Yet, some wars and peace conferences are more important than others because they fundamentally change history.
The war in Ukraine is a proxy war between Russia and NATO/USA, in which the USA openly says that the aim is to exhaust Russia. This raises several questions:
If that is the purpose of the USA/NATO, then what will be the reaction of an existentially threatened and nuclear-armed Russia?
One may further ask whether, in the light of nuclear war, there is something untouched ‘outside’ that will not be affected by the consequences of a nuclear war: a first destruction, after which the survivors will face global nuclear winter, with famine and mass death.
If there is no ‘outside’ in a nuclear war, it will involve the survival of all humanity. With that perspective, one could rightly ask why that doesn’t involve all states in a peace conference?
And following the same logic, one may ask whether the demands of Russia, China and the United States for a ‘sphere of interest’ and a ‘security zone’ are based on outdated thinking that belongs to the time of the conventional war?
The conflict and war in Ukraine is so complex and probably a tipping point for future global development that there is a need for a new kind of peace congress with the breakthroughs that characterized previous peace congresses.
It can safely be argued that it is time for humanity to jointly establish a global sustainable nuclear-weapon-free security order: a culture of peace...
...Properness, Non-violence and Breakthroughs
Rather than contributing to an endless and hopeless escalation in the direction of nuclear war, states – NATO states in particular – must:
Use existing legislation in NATO, the EU and the UN as soon as possible in a constructive effort for peace: meetings, diplomacy and mediation (Properness);
Work for the establishment of a ceasefire by the UN Secretary-General through a collection of neutral states, which deploy an UN-led peace operation – without asking the Security Council – consisting of neutral country soldiers in white vehicles, uniforms and blue helmets (Non-violence);
Ask the UN Secretary-General to initiate the participation of all states in a series of mediation conferences as soon as possible – again without asking the Security Council. These conferences, with the participation of all world leaders, will support the ceasefire in Ukraine by taking place inside Ukraine. The form should be a critical discursive mediation process emphasising humanity’s new situation in a new paradigm of peace (Breakthroughs).
If the super and/or great powers do not show up, the UN Secretary-General could call on the world population to start a global strike against war that shall continue until they do show up.

OCHA coordinates the global emergency response to save lives and protect people in humanitarian crises. We advocate for effective and principled humanitarian action by all, for all.
(An international organisation committed to stopping violent conflict and creating more peaceful societies).
What is peacebuilding?
Peacebuilding seeks to address the underlying causes of conflict, helping people to resolve their differences peacefully and lay the foundations to prevent future violence.
Why do we need peacebuilding?
The number of violent conflicts has increased dramatically since 2010. The world urgently needs to respond differently.
Violence affects everyone. Wars prevent communities from developing, stop children going to school and make it harder for people to access healthcare. Poverty then drives more conflict, and the cycle continues.
Around a quarter of all people live in countries affected by conflict and violence.
Over 68 million people alive today have been forced to flee their homes. This is the highest it’s been since the end of the second world war.
Conflicts drive 80% of all humanitarian needs.
By 2030, it is predicted that half of the world’s poorest people will be living in conflict-affected places.
We need to think differently – it’s time we stopped picking up the pieces and started putting an end to the cycles of violence. It’s time we invested more in peacebuilding.

Breaking the Cycle of Violent Conflict with Johan Galtung
University of California Television (UCTV) d. 21/1 - 2011
A noted pioneer in the field of Peace Studies, Johan Galtung makes the case for incorporating human rights as key to successful peace building around the world.
IPI: The Peacebuilding Commission and Climate-Related Security Risks
The International Peace Institute is an independent, international think tank located in New York and Manama, dedicated to the settlement and prevention of armed conflict.
There is a growing consensus that climate change exacerbates existing risks of conflict and violence. Yet, within the United Nations, there is a lack of agreement among member states on which organs are most appropriate to respond to climate-related security risks. The Peacebuilding Commission (PBC) has demonstrated a growing role as a forum for member state discussions on this issue. Analysis shows that the PBC’s emphasis on national ownership and its mandate to work across the peace and security, development, and human rights pillars of the UN; to bring together the Security Council, the UN’s Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), the General Assembly, and other organs of the UN; and to convene relevant stakeholders from within and outside the UN system, may make it uniquely positioned as a forum for states to seek international support to emerging climate-related security challenges.

Når FN bygger fred − og stater
Louise Andersen DIIs d. 2005
FN’s topmøde i september 2005 blev ikke det store vendepunkt, der var lagt op til. Helt til det sidste var det usikkert, om stats- og regerings- cheferne ville kunne blive enige om noget som helst. Den teatertorden, der typisk ledsager topmøder, var afløst af reelt drama og frygt for fiasko. Helt så galt gik det ikke. Faktisk blev stats- og regeringscheferne enige om en række tiltag, der i det små kan forbedre FN’s muligheder for at bidrage til målsætningen om en fredeligere, rigere og mere retfærdig verden. Et af disse tiltag er en særlig “fredsbygningskommission,” der skal sikre sammenhængende og langvarig international hjælp til borgerkrigsramte og sammenbrudte lande...
...Inden vi ser på dette forslags videre gang gennem systemet, er det værd at kaste et hurtigt blik på det “gabende institutionelle hul,” panelet pegede på. Det kan synes absurd, at FN – hvis fremmeste opgave siden opret-
telsen i 1945 har været at skabe fred og undgå krig – mangler et organ til at tage sig af fredsbygning. Ikke mindst når man tænker på, at FN i det daglige er engageret i flere fredsoperationer verden over end nogen anden institution, og at der siden den kolde krigs afslutning er sket en markant styrkelse af koblingen mellem sikkerhed og udvikling – de to kerneelementer i fredsbygning...
...Inden en solid dyne af FN-mistillid får lov at sænke sig, er det dog værd at sammenligne FN’s resultater med de resultater, andre – det vil i praksis sige USA – har opnået i lignende indsatser. Den amerikanske
tænketank RAND, der har tætte bånd til Pentagon, har gennemført en sådan systematisk sammenligning af syv USA-ledede missioner og otte FN-ledede missioner. Analysen viser, at FN slet ikke er så ringe endda.
I syv ud af de otte FN-missioner lykkedes det at etablere en form for fred. Det samme gælder kun halvdelen af de amerikansk-ledede. Og det til trods for, at USA i alle tilfælde har haft langt flere ressourcer til
rådighed end FN...
