The project will enable RYCO to enhance mutual trust and reconciliation across the Western Balkans (WB6) region, by building RYCOs capacity and aiding its ability to engage hard-to-reach youth and high school students/teachers. RYCOs establishment in 2017 – by all six contracting parties  in the region –comes at a critical moment when countries are aiming to accelerate their EU Integration processes. One of the main EU Enlargement requirements is Regional Dialogue and Reconciliation. RYCO has emerged from the Berlin Process, a political dialogue supported by several EU Member States and the WB6. RYCO is endorsed by governments, CSOs and youth representatives (who also sit on its Governing Board) in WB6 and promotes diversity and democratic values, fostering reconciliation and remembrance and intercultural mobility. Focused on capacity building, this IRF aims to support the UN to step in quickly to respond to the political momentum of RYCO's creation and maximize the chances for success of this regionally owned initiative.
