The World Centre for Peace, Liberties and Human Rights presents the exhibition « Drôles de Paix : 1945-2019 » (Strange Peaces : 1945-2019)

The exhibition « Drôles de Paix: 1945-2019 » is placed under the High Patronage of Mr Emmanuel Macron, President of the Republic.

Since 1945, the world has lived without a major conflict. A bipolar world resulted from the Cold War, divided into two blocks that, without direct confrontation, fought wars by proxy.

Since the fall of the Berlin Wall and the disappearance of the Soviet Union, the world has entered into a multipolar relationship that is complex to understand and anticipate.

Since 1950, Europe has been trying to regain its balance in the face of stronger and more numerous powers.

After the fall of the Berlin Wall and the end of the Cold War, Europe and the world are facing multiple challenges (terrorism, technologies, the environment, struggles for influence, the emerging of new powers, populism, international trade, financial crises…).

For 70 years, Peace has been relative: no major conflict, but an increase in regional conflicts and crises in an increasingly complex multipolar context.

The exhibition « Drôles de Paix : 1945-2019 » offers an insight into these different challenges in an immersive and playful scenography.
