2nd Edition

Dialogue as a tool of peace building in times of polarization

December 3rd, 2020: 2 pm (CET)

History taught us that violence can be a consequence of polarization. Yet, history has also taught us that dialogue proves itself as a powerful tool to open the doors of understanding whoever we call the other, dismantle the violence, and offer unlimited possibilities of how to move forward. During this workshop, we will get a chance to understand dialogue as a concept as well as get a practical experience with its tools and methods. We will also get to talk about success stories of when dialogue promoted peaceful coexistence as an alternative solution to polarization. Finally, we will be reflecting on the way forward and how can we integrate these methods and tools within our daily work.
