A joint initiative of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Black Sea Trust
The Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation of the German Marshall Fund (BST) are continuing their joint funding initiative to support confidence building activities of non-state actors in the South Caucasus and its neighboring regions. Projects related to Turkish-Armenian rapprochement are also supported by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. Partners are convinced that civil society can make a valuable contribution to the process of confidence building, mutual understanding and reconciliation between populations in territories involved in (armed) conflicts. This initiative is designed to encourage grantees to investigate new ways, methods and approaches to generating mutual understanding.
