Hawks and doves – Conflict

Many reasons can bring individuals and groups into confrontation with each other. At the same time, there are things we cannot achieve without others. This theme explores dynamics of war and peace through patterns of interaction such as winners and losers, pacifists and warmongers. It highlights how Europe today is largely the result of both a history of war, occupation and destruction, and a history of solidarity, negotiation, and reconciliation.
