Gisma co-hosts Round Table ahead of German-Ukrainian Economic Forum

The Eastern Committee of the German Economic Chamber’s Round Table event was attended by experts from the Ministry and Chancellor’s office and focused on the future of Eastern Europe, from Ukraine and Russia to neighbouring countries and their impact on global stability.

Professor Dr Peter Konhäusner, Professor at GISMA, arranged the event as facilitator of the cooperation with partners like DGAP and Junge GSP, as well as the Rotary Club. The initiative enabled GISMA to go beyond education and create a positive influence in Germany and elsewhere.

The event was attended by more than 35 people representing ministry and public authorities and was opened with a welcome speech from Professor Dr Stefan Stein, President of GISMA. In his speech, he shared a real-life example of how education can build bridges, rather than divide people, and bring communities closer together.

Professor Stein said: “Education is there for opening minds, helping solve conflicts and developing our futures.”

Other topics discussed included Azerbaijan, the global role of Turkey and how it has changed over the last few years and what would happen to global stability if Russia fell apart.

This was a pre-event for the fifth German-Ukrainian Economic Forum: ‘Focus on reconstruction’, which was held on Monday 24 October.
