The Law School of UCLAN Cyprus and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Law, Alternative and Innovative Methods (ICLAIM) are happy to announce their new project on social mediation, which is supported by the British High Commission in Cyprus. Mediation is a tool that revisits and repairs the social infrastructure of communities for purposes of preventing or addressing ongoing conflicts resulting from social forms of prejudice, such as racism and xenophobia. Social mediation establishes a setting wherein parties come together to identify, conceptualize and tackle the underlying causes of conflict for purposes of ensuring peaceful coexistence. The process is facilitated by a social mediator. This methodology has been widely used in a diversity of societal contexts, ranging from Northern Ireland to France. The project will work with communities, young people, stakeholders, civil society and professionals in Cyprus to promote social mediation as a tool to tackle communal conflicts.


There will be a set of four bi-communal workshops on social mediation. The workshops are all exactly the same, so please only register for the one which is most convenient to you!
