In the first phase, a mapping study of value-based conflicts in 7 countries of Central Europe was conducted. We were mapping different studies, issues, actors, and approaches related to conflicts which have the potential to escalate to radicalization and violent clashes in society.
In the second phase, we built a network called the European Network for Nonviolence and Dialogue for addressing social conflicts potentially leading to radicalization. The network has its own website, www.ennd.eu. Here, we collected the best practices throughout Europe on how to promote dialogue in value-based conflicts. We have also launched campaigns (the most successful one was the Peace Sofas) and realized 2 conferences. The project ended in 2018 but its results will be relevant for longer time.
