This mapping study is a product of the European Network for Non-Violence and Dialogue (ENND), which intends to seek non-violent approaches to current value-based conflicts. It helps collecting and sharing of the information that diverse CSOs have learned about third-party interventions and of process-based tools for public debate in seven different countries: Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania and Germany. It aims to create a functional network that will become a counterbalance to the diverging direction of Central and Eastern Europe from the ideals and values that frame the project of a united Europe and a network of civil society organisations and individuals active in intervening in value-based conflicts and de-radicalisation with the purpose of learning from one another, collecting tested conflict intervention approaches, supporting one another’s interventions and organising public campaigns promoting common goals and values.

Partners Bulgaria contributed to the mapping study by writing the chapter about value-based conflicts in Bulgaria.
