KYL is a partner on South-East Adriatic Dialogue project

Very happy to be part of this great project on young peacebuilder from the Adria region to a ten days training on conflict resolution, peacebuilding and community interaction in #Berlin. Our young lawyers were part of the first training course “South-East Adriatic Dialogue” from November 3rd to November 12th, 2019 in Berlin.

The project is supported by the European Commission and is being implemented by the “Comparative Research Network” organization based in Germany.

Given the fact that this project looks at conflict with a comprehensive approach in a multilevel perspective, in order to better achieve this result, the project will comprehend 4 different parts:

  • Two Training programs;
  • One Training/reflection phase; 

  • One Youth Exchange;

Ultimately, this project’s objective is to give a new focus on conflict transformation while trying to move away from the role of the pure “activist” towards the “professional” one. This means not to indoctrinate the participants on basic moral assumption but to stimulate their critical thinking (for instance through the analysis of narrative and strategic thinking) a to present conflict transformation as a problem- solving technique.

Partners on this project are six organizations: Association Training center for personal development, communication and counseling from Republic of North Macedonia; Vjestine from Croatia; Europe for Diversity Culture and Coexistence from Greece; Kosova Young Lawyers  from Kosovo;  Svet Reci Udruzenje from Serbia.

In this regard, this project aims to deliver a complete professionalism and transform the participants into peacebuilding practitioners, while offering great concrete hard and soft skills in the field of conflict resolution and in project management in relation to peacebuilding. This project’s aim is also to respond to concrete needs of NGO’s in order for them to achieve a better capacity to implement and to carry on efficient peace building activities.

On the first phase of the project in the Berlin meeting we were represented by our active members and law students: Festa Stavileci; Flondra Blakçori; Lirim Ismaili; Rina Mehana and Yll Sadiku.

Within 2020 this project will continue with one more phase in Germany and then the two remaining phases will take place in Croatia.
