This report describes visits made by representatives from Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue (NCPD) in Ukraine between May 2014 and July 2016. The purpose of these visits was to explore the relevance of dialogue as an approach to deal with the ongoing conflict in Ukraine and to connect with local Civil Society Organizations (CSOs). Many years ago, when we started to work in the Western Balkans, we invited potential leaders from ex-Yugoslavia to prolonged dialogue sessions on what were the causes and the consequences of the war. Is reconciliation possible? How to rebuild trust and willingness to cooperate? How to develop structures that foster integration and unity? These dialog seminars led to the development of the Nansen dialogue method, which has been practiced in
more than 100 seminars in Lillehammer and more than 200 in the Western Balkans.
