CENTER FOR PEACE MEDIATION
The Center for Peace Mediation is a small university-based institution for applied peace & conflict studies specializing on mediation in political conflicts and peace processes.
The Center is part of the Institute for Conflict Management at European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder), Germany, and home to an interdisciplinary team of scholar-practitioners.
Since 2018, the CPM is running a Research and Transfer Project on Peace Mediation with and at the Federal Foreign Office.
The Center explores and supports the practice of peace mediation with the aim to enable it to be more effective, reflective and responsible. One of the Center`s main characteristics is its transfer approach: science, practice and policy closely collaborate in order to stimulate joint learning and mutual support.
In its teaching, training and consultancy for diplomats, political decision-makers and civil society actors the Center focuses on the methods, ethics and legal dimensions of peace mediation. A special focus of its research activities is to seek for constructive ways to deal with the dilemmas of peacemaking.
