Transforming Conflicts - Dialogue, Mediation and Civil Society

Conflict Transformation impacts the root causes of conflict. Transforming these causes means that constructive, sustainable and non-violent strategies for human coexistance and cooperation can prevail. Building strong and healthy relationships is accompanied by transforming systems and structures that cause violence, human rights violations and injustice.

We need to transform

People's Intra- and Interpersonal Relations, Capacities and Mindsets
mode of thinking and behaviour
knowledge, know-how and experience

All projects of Culture for Peace support local efforts for non-violent, civil and democratic empowerment while we connect local partners with communities and other change makers regardless of religion, ethnicity, caste, gender, age or political background. The predominant focus on community-based needs leads to subsequent development of local capacities and dialogue structures.
