Crimea Policy Dialogue


The objective of the project is to establish a sustainable institutionalized mechanism for early warning and prevention of violent conflict aiming at systematic transformation of social, political, cultural and economic tensions and confrontations. During its implementation phases I and II in 2009-2013 the project has generated new empirical knowledge on the conflicts embedded in the Crimean society and offered new approaches to addressing such conflicts based on international experience. The project has generated concrete policy proposals based on consensus reached in the dialogue process, empirical evidence gained through research and knowledge drawn from international experience. Some of these are now in implementation phase, with support from the authorities in Crimea and Kyiv. Most advanced is the proposal to create a new multilingual system of education in Crimea, with its pilot phase, called the Crimean School, being under active development in collaboration with the relevant authorities. Finland has funded the project with nearly 1,2 million euro in 2009-2013. In 2014 the budget is 300 000 euros.
