Supporting EU peace mediation in the South Caucasus

In a three-day coaching programme from 17-19 October, Canan Gündüz and Juan Diaz worked with the EU Delegations to Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan, the team of the EU Special Representative, and the EU Monitoring Mission, on mediation and international peace mediation.

The objectives of the three days were to:

  1. Provide an introduction of mediation and international peace mediation theory and practice, including EU tools and strategies in existence
  2. Work through a number of specific issues and challenges relating to peace mediation in the South Caucasus
  3. Share a set of basic mediation skills for day-to-day use.

This mission formed part of mediatEUr's project 'Peace Mediation Coaching for the European External Action Service.' For more information on mediatEUr's work in training and coaching, contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
