Conflict Resolution / Reconciliation

Encounters, overcoming hostililty and reconciliations are important steps towards peace. We are convinced that such sensitive encounters are learnt and allows a nonviolent way towards peace.  

Therefore, working through conflicts and reconciliations are important to us – whether it is reclaiming the German past, previous regimes of dictators (for example Chile) or former wars (such as the countries of former Yugoslavia), dialogue work in Israel-Palestine, social integration of refugees and minorities, inter-religious work, training of qualified peace workers or peace educators in Kindergartens.
