This four-day meeting was organized by the Foundation for Democratic Change (Bucharest) and the Berghof Research Centre for Constructive Conflict Management (Berlin) and took place in the picturesque mountains of Sinaia (Carpathian Mountains). During several working sessions held in a creative atmosphere the participants developed a list of recommendations concerning the support of civil society in the region. The aim of the Foundation for Democratic Change is to promote human rights and minority rights within transitional societies in Central and Eastern Europe, by using the third-party consultation model of conflict resolution. The main activities of the foundation are in the fields of training, consultation and actual mediation.'
