IntroductionIntroduction

Location: Kyiv

The Right to Protection, CF (R2P) is a charitable fund that strives for Ukraine to become a country where refugees, stateless, non-citizens and displaced persons enjoy dignity and protection.

Since the beginning of the conflict in the East of Ukraine R2P has been monitoring the protection situation of IDPs, providing legal assistance and strengthening humanitarian response in Donetsk, Luhansk, Kharkiv, Dnipro, Zaporizhzhya regions.

PROJECT OVERVIEWPROJECT OVERVIEW

This project builds on R2P’s efforts to build bridges across the line of contact through a series of dialogues that will develop a shared vision of peaceful coexistence and common identity as a means of achieving long-term reconciliation.

The goal of the project is to increase understanding of different perspectives of the conflict among community members across the line of contact through facilitated dialogues that strengthen trust and relationships and ultimately reduce tensions.

In the framework of the project, R2P will use its connections within other organizations and individual experts to organize and/or attend coordination-working group meetings in order to discuss joint advocacy strategy in peacebuilding and other challenges to the process of dialogue (e.g. the security). R2P’s team will help take the dialogue group’s informal recommendations and turn them into specific recommendations to be conveyed to Track 1 and Track 2 dialogues.
