Mitigating Conflict Through Community Leadership Connections


Status: Finished

Partners and Supporters:

National Democratic Institute for International Affairs

Project description: This project aims to help facilitate and enable Kosovo Albanian and Serb communities to improve interethnic relations by increasing opportunities for formal and informal interethnic dialogue and cooperation. The project will engage with community leaders, students, woman, entrepreneurs and youth. The project encourages members from different communities to engage in a people-to-people approach on issues that both divide and bind them. Creating a space that promotes interethnic dialogue and communication enhances the likelihood of citizens being able to cooperate together on issues of shared concern.
