“Walk of Truth is an independent, non-profit, non-governmental organisation.
It was established in recognition of the need to protect cultural heritage and to provide an independent platform for respectful, constructive dialogue between people living in conflict-ridden environments”
Our code of practice is based on the belief that lasting peace can only be accomplished in war-torn and historically divided regions through mutual understanding of cultural differences, irrespective of race and geographical identity. An open mind and an open heart to otherness are of paramount importance. Conflict cannot be resolved otherwise; harmony and reconciliation remain unattainable.
Walk of Truth is a personal journey. It overrides politics, socioeconomic status and extends beyond the boundaries of nationality. Walk of Truth embodies the fundamental right of every human being to lay claim to his or her cultural heritage: birthright that will always afford a sense of place and an identity more real than data on a passport.
High-level advocacy, mobilisation of various disciplines and a multi-national group of practitioners are the foundation of Walk of Truth’s unique approach, and that which distinguishes us from other organisations working in the field of cultural heritage protection.
The Walk of Truth headquarters are located in The Hague, the Netherlands. We work through a wide network of volunteers, from all walks of life and from a variety of different nationalities.
