“The need for dialogue in Ukraine. Are experiences from Balkan relevant?”

13724046_1711279375800894_1136937390229067667_oSteinar Bryn from Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue lectured at the Summer School for Norwegians and Ukrainians in Chernivtsi (Ukraine). The idea of the school is to build a platform for fostering a new stage of development of the relations between Ukraine and Norway in academic and inter-cultural setting. 10 Students from Norway and 10 from different parts of Ukraine participated in the school this year. Participants had a chance to learn Norwegian and Ukrainian languages, take part in cultural events, seminars, open discussions and meetings with prominent Ukrainian experts, journalists, artists, social society leaders and politicians.

Steinar Bryn shared NCPD’s experience of conducting dialogue on the Balkans while Ukrainian Center for Concordance presented their plans on creatinga dialogue center in Ukraine already this year.
