In this year’s edition of the Kastelholm talks on peace, we dive into the importance of money
for peace and war.
What does it cost to wage war? When is the economy a cause of war?
When is the economy a promoter of peaceful cooperation? We discuss who the economic
winners and losers are in the wars today? How much is invested in weapons globally? What
effects do sanctions have on the economy of different countries? We ask ourselves how the
individual economy is affected by war and whether it is possible to 'peace mark' investments?
What would it cost to make a transition of the economy to a peaceful sustainable one?
