The Joint History Project was the original CDRSEE programme and remains at the heart of everything we do. The JHP was launched in 1999, in an effort to change the way history is taught in schools across the Balkans. The founders – historians, diplomats, philanthropists — felt very strongly that to reach real reconciliation in the region, you have to reach the grass roots, the youth. The programme is therefore centred on education, on providing history-teaching materials for teachers that convey multiple perspectives of the same events, and on ensuring that these materials be put to use across the region.
