Umiddelbare mål :
1) To support non-profit organisations who are inhibited in implementing their mission because of conflicts with the peaceful conflict resolution service of Peace Engineers. The focus of this direct action intervention is primarily – but not limited to – east Ukraine. 2) To advocate for a permanent establishment of a free support to non-profit organisations with peaceful conflict resolution service. The target group is primarily governmental institutions at ministry level, secondarily other organisations working in Ukraine with the aim at supporting reforms and socio-economic-democratic development of Ukraine.
Primary target groups; 1) Ukrainian non-profit organizations, 2) selected ministries and governmental structures. Secondary target groups: Ukrainian citizens potentially benefiting from the services that is offered by the non-profit organisations.
The development objective of this intervention is that non-profit organizations (NGOs and governmental organizations and other civil society actors) can solve conflicts more peacefully for mutual benefit, and for the benefit of citizens of Ukraine. Dignity Space and their newly educated Peace Engineers receives far more requests from NGOs, civil society actors and governmental institutions to help them resolve their conflicts, than they are capable of addressing. Our analysis is that lack of peaceful conflict resolution is a major obstacle for non-profit organizations to fully implement their potential for contributing to a more just, equal, democratic and social responsible civil society. Our goal is therefore to provide free service in peaceful conflict resolution to non-profit organizations, as well as advocate for governmental institutions to adopt a similar program in order to establish peaceful conflict resolution to non-profit organizations as a permanent and free service for the Ukrainian society. No such service is available in Ukraine today.
