  • Analysis of existing knowledge, practices, and policies regarding migration and conflict resolution at the local, regional, and national levels in Moscow, the Krasnoyarsk Region, the Arkhangelsk Region, the Mari El Republic, and the Republic of Tatarstan. The findings are presented on 5 Existing research reports and 5 Recommendation Papers for policy and decision-makers, available on the project website in English and Russian versions.
  • Establishment and implementation of a network of six Intercultural Education Platforms (IEP) in the premises and virtual environments of partner universities in Moscow, Kazan, Naberezhnye Chelny, Yoshkar Ola, Arkhangelsk, and Krasnoyarsk.
