The article is devoted to the re-awareness of the European and national experience of overcoming the problems of depressed groups caused by armed conflicts. The European Union has accumulated considerable experience of facilitating conflict resolution, post-war rehabilitation, formation of a culture of tolerance. One tool for translating this experience is the Peace Education project, aimed at conflict prevention, cultivating the values of peace, stability and prosperity, reducing the level of aggression and violence. The theoretical and methodological foundations of this project are analyzed, including polemology, conflictology, multicultural, communication paradigm, geophilosophy etc. The functions of Peace Education, which include post-conflict reconciliation, are described. This function is of particular importance for post-Soviet states that have gone through armed conflicts (Moldova, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Ukraine). They were faced with situations which some European countries have already gone through and are forced to look for solutions to the same problems that have been relatively successfully overcome in EU Member States. Therefore, it is necessary to study this experience, to realize achievements in national educational spaces. Particular attention is paid to the war-generated "new inclusive categories" – combatants, civilians who are physically, psychologically, financially affected by the armed conflict, relatives of the dead, displaced persons, etc. These categories are potential translators of negative experiences of violent problem-solving. Successful encapsulation practices for depressed groups, such as open borders and educational space, academic mobility and vocational retraining programs can be implemented in Ukraine with adaptation to national realities.
