Corridors contributes to peacebuilding in the South Caucasus and Eastern Europe by tackling root causes of conflict. We support people from the grassroots to the policy level and build mutual understanding through dialogue over the divide.
Corridors develops and implements participatory and holistic peace education and capacity building processes. We support the deconstruction of enemy images and build positive relations through joint learning and interest-driven cooperation.
Transforming protracted conflicts cannot take place without the meaningful inclusions of diverse actors. Empowering and connecting these people to become agents of change, overcome their trauma, and prepare their societies for peace is key.
