Standby Team of Mediation Experts 2018

The Standby Team is composed of world-leading mediation experts who can be rapidly deployed to provide advice on a wide range of issues that tend to arise in mediation and preventive diplomacy efforts, including: the design and management of dialogue processes, constitution-making, gender and inclusion issues, natural resources, power-sharing, and security arrangements. The Team’s services are available, without cost, to United Nations envoys, peace operations and Country Teams, as well as to regional organizations and partners with whom the United Nations works closely in conflict mediation, dialogue facilitation, and good offices worldwide.
