Multitrack Peace Mediation
This course covers a consolidated content of a general mediation training and focuses on the practicability in the fields of peacebuilding and development cooperation. It fulfils the requirements of the German Federal Association for Mediation (Bundesverband Mediation) and can easily be topped up for an accreditation.
Depending on the level of societal concern, cultural diversity, and complexity of a conflict, actors on different political levels (often called ‘tracks’) may have various approaches. This course embraces the complementarities of multiple tracks and promotes mediative efforts on all levels. Together the diversity of approaches creates an added value to the overall conflict transformation process. The course will look at the various tracks and the linkages among them to support sustainable peace.
The course addresses individuals that presently or in the future work in the areas of public or private diplomacy, development cooperation, humanitarian aid, civilian conflict resolution and peacebuilding as well as those who want to expand their knowledge and skills in conflict transformation.
For others who wish to acquire a new and self-contained career perspective as mediator, this course fulfils the requirements of the main component of the 200-hour certification of the German Federal Association of Mediation
