ECMI Action-oriented Projects
ECMI has pioneered an informal approach to constructive conflict management. It
maintains continuous links with groups and individuals in regions of tension or
conflict. At the appropriate time, it organizes workshops and seminars in the
regions of tension or at other venues. This gives the protagonists an
opportunity to engage in discourse with their counterparts outside of the
framework of confrontation. During these events ECMI makes available
experiences and approaches to solving specific contested issues which have been
attempted successfully in other regions. It seeks to structure the emerging
dialogue in a way that leads to concrete recommendations for cooperation among
the parties. ECMI will also seek to assist in developing a follow-on process,
to support the actual implementation of initiatives which may have been agreed
during a workshop. ECMI maintains its interest in areas of tension in all parts
of Europe, but presently specifically in the Balkans as well as the CIS-area.
ECMI gratefully acknowledges the generous support of its funders, who value
ECMI's work and have supported it financially.
