Equipping conflict parties and mediators with the right tools at the right time can fundamentally change conflict dynamics. mediatEUr's experts contribute in-depth knowledge, and it bring together the right people to turn that knowledge into practice.
mediatEUr was founded and built up by a number of individuals that saw challenges in their respective fields of international conflict resolution, be that in the commercial arena, or foreign policy. The founding idea is that promoting interest-based negotiation and mediation could make a meaningful contribution to tackling these challenges.mediatEUr was established as a forum that brings together and supports conflict resolution professionals, and helps advance the professional practice of international peace mediation. Since our founding in 2007, we have worked on a growing number of assignments and projects around the world, and have built up a solid network of professionals that act as a resource in this field.
