Report Between September 18-20, 2019 I participated in the international conference 'Talking while fighting? The Causes and Consequences of Civil War Ceasefires' The conference was jointly organized by the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) and the Center for Security Studies at the ETH Zürich. At the conference, I presented findings from my field research in Georgia that I conducted in 2017 and 2018 with financial support from the RUB Research School (PR.INT). The title of my presentation was 'Crossing the Conflict Divide - International Organizations as Bridge Builders between Georgia and Abkhazia.' I was able to meet both experts and practitioners from all over Europe and the US.
