The topic of ethnic relations is present in all C.I. activities as we perceive these relations to be the most important for the stability of Serbian multiethnic society, as well as for the regional stability. Overcoming ethnic hatred which brought wars, death and destruction is a long process we want to contribute to as much as we can so that we can avoid any future conflict. We have been promoting and educating on tolerance, acceptance of diversity and inevitability of living together as members of different ethnic groups and nations.
CI strategy is that only by breaking down regional, national, ethnic, religious, gender and social barriers it is possible to build a stronger, more effective, and potentially more sustainable NGO community and thus to contribute to the development of the society in general. We try to overcome fear and isolation inherited from the past and increased by the ex regime, by putting in contact people who otherwise wouldn't meet each other (for different reasons - geographic distance, different backgrounds, type of activities) and this encourages cooperation, joint activities, exchange ideas, views and theories, learning from each other.
We are very proud of the Prize given to us by the Association of Minority NGOs for "promoting collective ethnic minority rights in Yugoslavia."
