Involving Transnational Communities - Civil Society Forum on Conflicts

Involving Transnational Communities - Civil Society Forum on Conflicts

Objective

INFOCON is the unique result of extensive consultations and discussions between members of civil society and leading scholars in various disciplines. These consultations have been synthesised into the objectives of the proposed project. The overall objective of the project is to create a better understanding of how Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) representing Transnational Communities (TCs) can help in preventing and resolving conflicts in Europe and the world. Under this overall objective INFOCON strives to attain the following specific objectives: 1. Provide recommendations and strategic tools for CSOs based on the project’s results in order to increase the efficiency and involvement of CSOs in the elaboration of policies related to transnational communities and conflicts. 2. Verify past research on TCs and their role in conflicts with the benefit of CSOs’ experience and their involvement in the research process. It also addresses the current gap between civil society knowledge and academic expertise. 3. Advance the scientific knowledge on the dynamics and current potential role of CSOs in different conflicts by elaborating new and innovative comparisons of TCs across Europe (four cities: Amsterdam, Berlin, Brussels and London) and the world (three regions of origin: Turkey, Kosovo and Great Lakes). 4. Provide conflict-sensitive policy recommendations in order to enhance current conflict policy and to use the leverage and opportunities that transnational community CSOs offer in the field of conflict and peace. 5. Significantly contribute to public debate on the role of TCs in conflicts and conflict policies by large-scale dissemination activities aimed at fostering global communication and connectivity.
