Furthermore, Caucasian House plays an active role in the peacebuilding, reconciliation and the trust building not only between the Caucasian nationalities but it also contributes to the peaceful dialogue between representatives of the Russian and the Ukrainian civil societies.

The International University on Conflict Transformation is a continuation of the processes discussed above. The goal of the project is the promotion of the better understanding of the regional conflicts, and the peaceful transformation through conducting a series of lectures and a free public discussion.

The other objections are the trust building between future decision-makers, the rising of the awareness about the conflicts and the methods of their peaceful transformation.
