Conflict Resolution / Reconciliation

It is our understanding that 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.
