Corridors is an initiative that aims to foster dialogue and cooperation between societies from Eastern Europe, the Caucasus, and the European Union. Together with local partners, we develop joint learning and capacity-building opportunities in the field of formal and informal peace education. A specific focus and key competence of Corridors is the facilitation of cross-regional dialogue and cooperation around protracted conflicts in the post-Soviet space and beyond. We develop and implement projects that enhance knowledge transfer and create new opportunities for direct people-to-people contact across the conflict divide. Therefore, joint education and academic cooperation are used as tools to revitalise exchange and cooperation between conflicting sides. In a cross-regional framework, we strive to facilitate cooperation between academic and civil society stakeholders to revitalise dialogue between communities. Corridors aims to enhance awareness and understanding of the context and dynamics around protracted conflicts in specific regions and on an international level. Corridors is designed using a cross-thematic approach, linking capacity building and cooperation in the field of formal and non-formal education with dialogue activities in an innovative way.

Out now: Corridors Proceedings Vol. II: Insights from Young Scholars and Peacebuilders from the Caucasus.

The year 2020 was incredibly turbulent for the Caucasus and peacebuilding initiatives working there. Despite the challenging circumstances, Corridors successfully implemented the project ‘Advancing Young Peacebuilder Careers’ in cooperation with our regional partners Respublika Idei (Sukhum/i), Youth and Community Action Club (Samakhbyur), Humanitarian Research Public Union (Baku), Civic IDEA (Tbilisi), and Kabardino-Balkaria State University (Nalchik). 

 

Sixteen young experts from Abkhazia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Nagorno-Karabakh, and Russia participated in the project, which combined academic input, practical training, and regional exchange. They learned vital concepts of peacebuilding and conflict studies and strengthened essential skills in academic writing and mediation. In particular, the participants developed and discussed their own research articles or policy and opinion papers applying the learned skills and knowledge.

  

This publication consists of ten selected papers that have been developed, presented, discussed, and reviewed during the project. It provides the reader with first-hand insights, analysis, and opinions from young scholars and peacebuilders from the Caucasus region. In this way, the edited volume facilitates the exchange of knowledge both within the region and internationally. Sincere gratitude to our engaged colleagues, inspiring and courageous participants, and the German Federal Foreign Office  for its generous funding.
