The dialogue on contested narratives of what went wrong since the end of the cold war, implemented by inmedio peace consult (Berlin), the Institute for Law and Public Policy (Moscow) and Ideas for Change (Kyiv), has reached a new stage: From Friday Nov 8th to Tuesday Nov 12th, 18 think-tank experts, NGO activists, journalists, historians and other scholars from Germany, Russia and Ukraine intensively analyzed the variety of narratives present in the respective countries. We had eye-opening moments and enriching exchange of perspectives! Thanks to the high commitment and constructive attitude of all dialogue-group members, work on the joint publication is already in progress. CivilSocietyCooperation
