This policy brief considers the relationship between peace and justice in any attempt at peace-making in the Russian-Ukraine War i.e., the tests that should be applied in order for any cessation of fighting in Ukraine to be considered a just end. A recent private seminar on 20 July 2022 hosted a discussion around the question, ‘Is a peace deal possible with Putin?’ This publication contains a non-verbatim summary of key points made by panellists in their presentations. The audience was a small group of experts, academics, civil society advocates and policy-makers. Panellists were united in their view that a peace deal, including notions of a just end, was not possible with Putin in power. In drawing this conclusion, they nonetheless laid out scenarios for how Ukraine could successfully prosecute a military campaign that led to an end to the war.
