In 2013, the Mediation Support Network (MSN) developed the report,
Translating Mediation Guidance into Practice: Commentary on the UN Guidance for Effective Mediation
(foreword by Jimmy Carter), to expand on the UN Guidance for Effective Mediation and provide examples
of mediation practice in conflicts around the world.


In October 2016, members of the MSN published a joint letter addressed to the incoming UN Secretary-General entitled
'Use the potential for prevention and expand the space for mediation'.
