Transition Dialogue 2019-2021 – Dealing with change in democratic ways, is a two-year project [team leader in Croatia is Caroline Hornstein Tomić, PhD – from the Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences, in collaboration with the Znanje na djelu (Knowledge at Work) Foundation] that addresses the issue of how the transition from communism to democracy and market economy is taught in schools and in the non-formal education sector. The project also explores how the resources used by teachers/educators can be enriched and more diverse. Seven partners from Central and Eastern Europe – Latvia, Germany, Ukraine, Russia, Bulgaria, Croatia, and Poland – are participating in a project funded by the German Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale fuer politische Bildung, bpb) and coordinated by two NGOs, Deutsch-Russischer Austausch DRA e.V., and Sofia Platform Foundation. More information is available at fb.com/transitiondialogue or translation-dialogue.org. Under the title Transition Dialogue, an exchange of opinions was launched in 2014 among experts from academic and non-governmental organizations dealing with civic education in Germany and Central and Eastern Europe. The title of the current publication is “Challenges of Transition in Eastern Europe: Lessons for Civic Education”.
