Abstract

The aim of this paper is to transfer the findings of the research project “Challenges to Dialogue in Ukraine” (2016-2017) to dialogue experts and actors on the ground.

Empirical data from 40 in-depth interviews and three focus groups, revealed six patterns and possible risks if the patterns are continued: facilitated dialogues present only a minor part of all dialogue projects in Ukraine; they are focused on technical issues; concentrated in the Eastern part of Ukraine; and often implemented through impactless approaches with a deficient inclusion of women and “the other Ukrainians.”

Keywords: dialogue, peacebuilding, armed conflict, conflict resolution, Ukraine
