We support renowned international mediation organizations and local mediation initiatives as well as hands-on mediation research with practical relevance. A particular focus is the support of institutional development, capacity building, and the promotion of ad-hoc mediations. We strengthen sustainable, holistic, and inclusive mediation approaches that provide and make best use of the synergies of different mediation efforts on all social and political levels. Another priority is the analysis of applied practice and the transfer of knowledge to other situations of (emerging) conflicts. Our approach is rooted in a comprehensive understanding of mediation that includes dialog facilitation.
