|Conflicts Mediation -An effective conflict resolution method that needs to be popularized |
Since the end of the Cold War, non-state actors have become increasingly involved in conflicts and the method of resolution has had to evolve as well. In this context, mediation has emerged as one of the most suitable method. In addition to reduce the intensity of the dispute, it deals with the root causes in order to prevent reengagement. This process, which is diplomatic in nature, can also prevent the outbreak of discord.
The discussion around mediation would consist of finding and implementing solutions that would allow for behaviour that is conducive to peace, sustainable development and more virtuous in social and legal terms. The real challenge is to succeed in implementing, within the current political and legal system, the solutions presented by mediation, and then the entire population would benefit from a peaceful resolution of conflicts.
These workshops will consist of :
Give an overview of mediation
Explain who can practise it and who can receive it
Present the benefits, strategies and techniques of mediation with successful cases
Carry out a series of working exchanges to see how the solutions experimented in the field of mediation could be transposed in society.
In view of the current challenges facing the planet and humanity, everyone have to take better decisions while respecting the environment: it can be done through mediation. The solutions it brings could be implemented in the functioning of society thanks to this type of high-level meeting that brings together all the actors concerned.
