Peacemaking breakfast: Building Bridges for reconciliation
Peacemaking breakfast: Building bridges for reconciliation
“I am an experienced mediator – so - what must I do now do to advance and become a Peacemaker?”
Want to learn more? Then join us at CEDR for our International Conflict Mediation and Peacemaking Breakfast event on 14 November from 8.30-10.30:
Current conflicts around the world, such as those in Syria, Crimea and Yemen, have huge challenges in finding a resolution, with the international ramifications of multiple states exerting influence and pressing their interests. In the world of peacemaking, the reality is that the flexibility of global business, which frequently has a local presence and connections, means that it can often move quicker and more effectively to set the stage for early negotiations and even facilitate initial dialogue. This is opposed to the difficulties faced by foreign governments or regional authorities who often have to take more formal channels and build formal consensus before starting discussions. The aim of the programme is to bring into the field of peacemaking experienced mediators who are working in the commercial sector.
