Experience of Peacekeeping Dialogues
in the East of Ukraine
Dialogue is the only civilized and adequate approach to the interaction of individuals who seek to build a free democratic country, integrated into the world community in accordance with the principles of an open society.
The practice of implementing the Dialogue in Ukraine implies its widespread use in various spheres of social relations. For example, building community-based relationships on the level of community – and local authorities; making socially important decisions at the community level; resolving conflicts between different social, ethnic, professional, religious and any other groups; searching for an understanding between the opposite in their beliefs and opinions segments of the Ukrainian society; search for solutions to the problems of state policy in all spheres of life and country development.
During the report, we will share the experience of implementing a dialogue in various spheres of life, both in the East of Ukraine and in other regions.
