Mediationskonferenz Brüssel, 28. Mai 2013

On 28 May 2013, CoAD participated in a High-Level Conference in Brussels „The EU As A Peacemaker – Enhancing EU Mediation Capacity“ which was hosted by the Irish Presidency of the Council of the European Union, the European Parliament and the European External Action Service:

In her intervention she emphazised the need not only for improving instruments but also a joint conceptual approach towards mediation among the EU member states: That would include a) to make better use of conflict transformation experience available within the EU, such as the Northern Irish case, and b) to differentiate more clearly between explicit mediation efforts (and respective mandates), and political dialogue strategies and formats which are less driven by partial expectations in situations of immediate crisis.
