The broader view of the project relates to how dialogue can help deal with the consequences of the armed conflict in the East and the many internal challenges facing Ukrainian authorities and civil society. In this sense, the platform seeks:
to give more visibility to dialogue work in Ukraine,
to give more sustainability to dialogue initiatives,
to demonstrate positive results from dialogue efforts to Ukrainians and internationals,
and to develop vertical links between authorities and civil society as well as assisting the promotion of a culture of dialogue in Ukraine.
This report collects the main outcomes of the meeting, and outlines a list of specific tasks addressing current dialogue needs that the platform can help the Ukrainian dialogue practitioners to achieve. This list will evolve as the work of the groups develops, and will help set the priorities for the following meetings. Together, the tasks form the ‘how’ of dialogue in Ukraine, a body of opportunities and areas of work.
