Marko Lehti, Tampere Peace Research Institute (TAPRI), and Cindy Wittke, Research Group Frozen and Unfrozen Conflicts, Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS) in Regensburg

The project aimed to enhance and spread knowledge about the supportive role of Track II processes for conflict transformation. In 2018, three field trips to Armenia, Georgia and Moldavia were organized, and a workshop titled “Experiences and Opportunities: The OSCE as Mediator and Facilitator of Civil Society Dialogues in Long-Standing Conflicts” took place on 22-23 November in Vienna. This was the first phase of a two-year project.
