Leader of Nansen Dialogue Centre Mostar (NDC)
With a background in Economics and applied conflict transformation, Elvir joined the Nansen Dialogue Centre Mostar (Bosnia Herzegovina) in 2000. The organisation was founded the same year to promote dialogue amongst different ethnic, religious, political and interest groups with the aim of preventing and resolving conflicts.
Elvir has been leading Nansen Dialogue Centre Mostar (NDC) since 2007. Together with his team, he has focused in recent years on designing, promoting and successfully implementing integrated education activities and trainings in a number of municipalities affected by the “two schools under one roof” system. With its hands-on experience of working with local stakeholders through long-term projects, NDC has successfully built acceptance and trust amongst local communities, and become one of leading non-governmental organisations in the field of inter-ethnic dialogue and integrated education in the Herzegovina region.
