Mediation Networks

Collaboration and partnership among different actors involved in mediation is essential. Mediation actors will only be able to effectively deal with the challenges from the high-level initiatives to the grass roots when taking advantage of the respective comparative advantages and fostering coherence, coordination and complementarity. Several cooperative mechanisms and networks have been established to promote more professional and better coordinated mediation efforts. This section presents a number of these mediation networks.
