CENTER FOR DEMOCRACY AND RECONCILIATION IN SOUTHEAST EUROPE

Our Mission

The absence of immediate conflict does not necessarily create real or lasting peace. Reconciliation, that is, the work of bringing people together to talk, understand each other and cooperate is a long-term process that requires sustained efforts in a number of fields, but multi-disciplinary actors working in inclusive, participatory ways.

Testimonials

"The books of the Joint History Project remind me on my school time when I used to live in Berlin, especially on history classes held by the famous Dr. Krause. They give objective information, it is the reader who is invited to make his own opinions and put the puzzles together to create the big picture.

Workshop 2 - Report

"In my opinion, the Dubrovnik workshop has been fully successful, not because it has brought at one table young scholars of different nationality, open to dialogue and reconciliation. But because it has put to work young scholars with different research perspectives, all of them eager for multi-perspectivity, methodologically well equipped against the traps of anachronisms, and sufficiently sound in their scientific training to accept criticism from their colleagues and from the senior scholars without feeling diminished.
