The Center for Peace Mediation is a small university-based institution for applied research in peace and conflict studies specializing on mediation in political conflicts and peace processes.
The Center is active in the areas of Research & Analysis, Academic Teaching, Facilitation & Support and Policy & Strategy.
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, which is based on close collaboration between science, practice and policy and stimulates joint reflection, mutual learning and support of each others`work in and on peace mediation.
A special focus of its research activities is to seek for constructive ways to deal with the dilemmas of peace mediation. In its teaching, training and consultancy for diplomats, political decision-makers and civil society actors the Center interlinks methods, ethics and legal dimensions of peace mediation.
