Building a Dialogue Support Platform in Ukraine | Launch and Job Opportunity

UDSP Exclamation

On 1 July 2015, mediatEUr is beginning the work on the Dialogue Support Platform in Ukraine, under the project 'Building a Dialogue Support Platform in Ukraine' for the United Nations Development Programme in Ukraine. The platform helps Ukrainian dialogue actors connect with each other, understand their needs, and communicate with national actors and the international community, utilising interactive, modern dialogue technologies. 

The goal of the Dialogue Support Platform in Ukraine (DSPU) is to generate positive thinking to help transform the conflict that has affected Ukraine since 2013, utilising modern technologies and dialogue expertise. We connect Ukrainian dialogue experts with people at all levels of society, allowing for horizontal dialogue, and fostering exchange with the policy level and the international community. Ultimately, the platform helps define options for regional engagement, reform, and a way forward. We do this through an in-country project that supports local dialogue efforts and an online platform that allows us to map, analyse and present the results of these efforts and expand their reach.
