Mediating Conflicts between Groups with Different Worldviews: Approaches and Methods

Joint project with the University of British Columbia and CSS ETHZ Zurich

This action-​research project brings together peace practitioners and researchers to learn about methods for mediating conflicts between groups with different worldviews. Case givers working on fifteen ongoing conflicts were selected for this project and take part in the following activities:

  1. Writing up conflict cases that are being mediated across worldview differences

  2. Joint discussions of draft papers in small groups (online)

  3. Finalizing and publishing outcomes in various formats (report, action-​​guide and edited volume)

  4. A face-​​to-​face workshop in June 2021 to harvest learnings for the wider field of mediation and conflict transformation
