Please note: this blog has moved to — please reset your bookmarks, accordingly. I’ll cross-post for a while, yet.

Attorney-mediator Victoria Pynchon has an inspired tribute to the Mediators Without Borders project, as well as links for more information. As further stated here:

A key goal of MWOB is to develop indigenous skills for group facilitation, public dialogue, strategic planning, collaborative negotiation, and peer mediation.

The concept is for teams of volunteer mediators to conduct skill-building workshops consistent with the norms, values, and culture of the locale.

The mission is to increase the capacity of hostile communities to prevent, resolve, and recover from violent conflict.

Ken Cloke’s article, Mediators Without Borders: A Proposal to Resolve Political Conflicts, is posted online at Guy and Heidi Burgess’ Beyond Intractability Project (“Beyond Intractability: A Free Knowledge Base on More Constructive Approaches to Destructive Conflict”). Ken is the key founder of MWOB.
