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.

When I first started working on dialogue in Ukraine, I sat down with two think-tankers from Kyiv and explained to them that my interest, and that of my colleagues’, was in dialogue and mediation: “we want to learn who’s doing dialogue and what they’re learning from it.” They looked at me cross and made it clear that “no one is doing dialogue in Ukraine”.

Can we mediate a peace process with(out) land?

Last year, I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Initiatives for Change retreat on Land, Lives and Peace in Caux, Switzerland. A seemingly unlikely choice for me, but since I was involved in the Aceh peace process, the nexus between land and conflict was something of interest to me.
