The East-West commitment of SCI since 1946

Since 1946 SCI is involved in the eventful changes and developments in the East-West exchange. The beginn of activities goes back to 1946 with post war relief projects in Poland and Czechoslovakia. With the beginning of the Cold War in the late 1940s, SCI set up a continuously exchange with several communist countries from 1955 on. In co-operation with socialist volunteer organisation workcamps were organised. This contacts were intensified in the 70s in order to facilitate volunteer exchange. Since the political shift in 1990s new SCI initiatives started in Eastern Europe.
