Trialogs are a particular dialog format for stakeholders from politics, economics and organized civil society, as well as science and media. The discussion’s aim is to unveil multiple perspectives on current political issues and societal challenges. Trialogs facilitate a mutual understanding of conflicts, controversies and consensuses, that are important for the development of broad-based solutions oriented towards the common good.
This essay explains the theoretical, intellectual and historical fundamentals of the Trialog concept. Based on our Trialog experience, it will also exemplify how Trialogs can stimulate and restructure the political decision-making process in a more participative and transparent way.
