The background of the project outline is constituted by existing regional conflicts in Eastern Europe and Caucasus and the increasing tensions within many EU countries in regards to nationalism, xenophobia and racism.
Viewing the post-soviet context with frozen and hot conflicts/war in Crimea, Donetsk, Lugansk (Ukraine – Russia), Abkhazia and Southern Ossetia (Georgia), Chechnya (Russian Federation), and Nagorno-Karabakh (Armenia), Kurdish conflict (Turkey) conflict management and peace building are obviously among the most important issues especially among young people. In Western Europe racism, xenophobia and racial discrimination are increasing not only in traditional immigration countries like Germany, Italy and Netherlands, but all across Europe, which is displayed by the examples of national populism in Greece, tension between Kurdish and Turkish whole over the Europe etc.
All the above stated illustrates the importance of youth work in the areas of peace building, conflict transformation, human rights education and anti-discrimination.
