Approaches to Reconciliation Work

Peace-building and conflict transformation are increasingly popular concepts in local and international youth work, particularly in post-violent settings in Eastern and South Eastern Europe, but adapted concepts also gain ground addressing community conflicts in Western Europe. Most of the approaches in use focus on people-to-people approaches bringing young people from conflicting communities together. However, they often do not address directly the violent past and the resulting deeply rooted negative imagines towards the other conflict party.

Objectives of the course:
To introduce approaches to reconciliation work and Dealing with the Past (DwP) as a concept in youth-led conflict transformation processes,
To qualify youth workers in triggering youth-based projects on reconciliation work by non-formal educational methods,
To support youth workers to reflect critically on their practice and how they pass knowledge to young people in the field of peace education, especially in view to remembrance and reconciliation,
To prepare a community research on potentials for reconciliation work on local, regional or international levels.

Four places are available for participants from Germany.

“Explore your Potential – Competences for Youth Empowerment


Participation of young people is one of the key questions that youth workers address in their work. Concepts of participation usually refer to at least four dimensions: social participation, political participation, economic participation and cultural participation.

The project intends to contribute to the development of measures that foster the participation of young people in political, social, cultural and economic life in their countries. Thus, the project aims to strengthen organisations in making best use of the power of educational programmes addressing youth needs by an empowerment approach that provides young people with the necessary competences to become an active part of the society in which they live.

Objectives of the course:
To deepen the understanding for concepts of youth empowerment and participation amongst youth leaders and educators,
To enhance theoretical knowledge and practical skills of educators in planning, implementing and evaluating educational short-term projects on local, national and European levels,
To create new workshops, exercises, role plays for youth projects,
To create European learning partnerships in the field of youth empowerment.

Two places are available for participants from Germany.
