WE SUPPORT THE PEACEFUL TRANSFORMATION OF ARMED CONFLICT SINCE 2007

mediatEUr was established as a forum to bring together and support conflict resolution professionals, to helps advance the professional practice of international peace mediation and dialogue with a distinct European touch. Since our founding, we have worked on a number of assignments and projects around the world, and have built up a solid network of professionals that act as a genuine resource in this field.

OUR WORK

We seek to assist all parties to a conflict to address differences constructively and use conflict as an opportunity for change. We support mediators and facilitators, local and international alike, and international institutions to improve their work in this area. We provide direct mediation and facilitation, advice to conflict resolution efforts, and provide capacity-building for individuals and organisations that seek to engage in peace work.

OUR APPROACH

Providing conflict parties and mediators with the right tools at the right time and an appropriate mind-set can fundamentally change conflict dynamics. We seek to contribute in-depth knowledge and nurture a way of understanding. We bring together the right people in our forum to turn that knowledge into practice. Our approach is always value-based on agreed confidentiality and transparency, on the human relation first, and the do-no-harm principle.

Working to advance women in high level mediation
