Where: Bucharest, Romania
Building on the experiences of the 6 previous events, the 7th Congress will be another major step in developing the capacity for a more peace “able” world, as more than 250 mediators and peace builders from different countries and continents will have the chance to share ideas, experiences and strategies, while building friendships and networks.
MBB uses the term “mediation” broadly to include any third-party facilitated conflict resolution process designed to reach agreement, resolve conflicts, solve problems, build trust, heal relationships, find common ground and plan the future.
Our Congress is unique in that it provides the opportunity to:
- network with a wide range of conflict resolution and related professionals from around the world;
- hear analysis of current conflicts by Track 1 and Community level actors;
- discuss creative approaches to historical conflicts’
- develop state of the art skill sets for the current global context and
- create collaborative projects.
