The Robert Bosch Stiftung (RBSG) and the Black Sea Trust for Regional Cooperation of The German Marshall Fund of the United States (BST) ran from 2011 to 2020 the Confidence Building Program- the last call closed in October 2019. The program supported confidence building activities of non-state actors in the South Caucasus, Ukraine, and Moldova, and its neighboring countries. The partners are convinced that civil society can make a valuable contribution to the process of confidence building, mutual understanding, and reconciliation between populations in territories presently or recently involved in (armed) conflicts. This initiative was designed to encourage grantees to investigate new ways, methods, and approaches for fostering mutual understanding.
