“Reconciliation of the Divided Societies: Finding Common Ground”

The situation in the world today shows that such communities are appearing more and more frequently. 2020 was very rich in terms of interethnic, international and intra-social civil conflicts, both in the world and in the post-Soviet space and Russia. Further, the pandemic has exacerbated contradictions and social inequality and contributes to the division of communities. Regarding this, the problem of reuniting divided communities and overcoming post-conflict traumas becomes urgent and we have decided to return to this topic again, as it is also largely correlated with the problem of commemoration of wars, which our international summer school this year was dedicated to.
