Background Information

Corridors - Dialogue through Cooperation is a German peacebuilding NGO. Since 2016, the organisation evolved from research and project work at the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies and Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena. Corridor's conceptual and thematic approach is thus strongly rooted in intensive academic analysis of the challenges and opportunities for civil society conflict transformation and dialogue promotion. In 2019, Corridors was finally established as a non-profit organisation in Berlin and has since evolved into one of Germany's leading peacebuilding NGOs in the South Caucasus and Eastern Europe.
