Since the mid-1990s, international and local civil society actors have been engaged in a wide range of different initiatives aimed at transforming the conflicts in the South Caucasus. A number of these initiatives are described in International Alert's book Mediation and dialogue in the South Caucasus: A reflection on 15 years of conflict transformation initiatives.

The contributions - including these extracts on the Schlaining Process - were selected to demonstrate the diversity of peacebuilding work undertaken by civil society, including work with politicians, economic actors, women, media, academia and cultural figures, to name a few.
