On 21 February 2024, this XCEPT webinar with King’s College London brought together experts on Iraq and Ukraine to discuss the challenges and issues in reconstructing a post-conflict society. Speakers focused upon how Ukraine can learn lessons from the recovery process already underway in Iraq, how the international community can best support an inclusive reconstruction, and why building resilience does not always mean a return to the status quo.

Speakers included:

  • Dr Craig Larkin, who moderated the discussion.
  • Dr Inna Rudolf, who discussed her XCEPT research into post-conflict recovery and reconstruction in Iraq.
  • Olga Kotiuk, who focused upon her work with the Project For Resilient Ukraine (PFRU) on memory and identity.
