IMPACT Series: vertical coordination

Guest Speakers: Julian Davis, Standby Team Coordinator UN Mediation Support Unit (MSU); Canan Gunduz, Mediation Advisor European External Action Service (EEAS); and Kristian Herbolzheimer, Philippines/Colombia Program Director Conciliation Resources.

 

The work of Track-I mediation teams are crucial in reaching cease fire and peace agreements between a government and the leaders of its armed opposition. Likewise, while high-level negotiations are underway, grassroots mediators provide much needed support across the national territory towards mitigating the violence perpetrated by armed men on civilian populations. Converging these two tracks can provide critical reinforcement in helping to advance sustainable peace in complex conflict contexts.

The International Mediation Community of Practice (IMCP) mediation IMPACT working group is co-led by CIT, MC and IPSI. The IMCP provides an informal platform for discussion between mediation practitioners, trainers, academics and providers of mediation support services who actively engage in international third-party conflict transformation, to strengthen our skills and increase the use of dialogue processes in complex conflict contexts. The IMCP is an initiative of Communities in Transition (CIT).
