Building human rights and social justice through community engagement
European Dialogue works at local, national and international levels within the wider Europe to promote equality and social integration for excluded communities and vulnerable minorities.
We work to engage and support excluded communities and vulnerable minorities in their struggle to combat discrimination and racism, in the interests of human rights, equality and diversity.
European Dialogue is a British based, not for profit organisation which works with international partners to engage and support excluded communities and vulnerable minorities in their struggle to combat discrimination, racism and intolerance, and to promote democracy and human rights, social cohesion and safe communities.
European Dialogue pilots innovative models of good practice, working with local, national and international experience and participation, on the implementation of national social inclusion policies at the local level across Europe.
Promoting minority integration at the local level addressing service delivery in all policy areas
European Dialogue was launched in 1990, with the support of Charter 88 and Liberty, as an independent, not-for-profit organisation to promote peace, democracy, social justice and environmental responsibility in a united Europe.
European Dialogue developed out of the work of European Nuclear Disarmament (1980-1990) which helped to establish a network of opposition groups in Central and Eastern Europe and the non-aligned peace and democracy movements in Western Europe and North America (the OSCE countries).
European Dialogue is a founding member of the pan-European Helsinki Citizens Assembly (hCa) network, a rich resource in terms of like-minded NGOs and individuals; many of whom we are still working with today.
European Dialogue works in partnership with a range of civil society organisations to facilitate the exchange of good policy and practice from the UK and elsewhere in human rights, race equality, conflict resolution, community development and democratic institution building.
