The Effects of War and Conflict

In this roundtable, speakers from various disciplines and perspectives talk about war, conflict and their effects on cities such as Amsterdam. The expert participants examine how the current war in Ukraine has awoken the public’s consciousness of war, as well as highlighted various biases. Together they reflect on the positionality and responsibility of institutions when it comes to crises, the dangerous reproduction of tropes, as well as self-reflection as a slow process of change. The conversation was moderated by Imara Limon (curator) and features Sahar Shirad (legal professional), Jolle Demmers (professor), Chris Keulemans (writer), and Fatima Warsame (journalist).
