Mediation and negotiation are collaborative approaches that involve the assistance of a neutral third party to facilitate communication and resolution between conflicting parties. These techniques encourage active listening, empathy, and compromise, allowing all parties to express their concerns and interests.
By encouraging open and respectful dialogue, mediation and negotiation can lead to win-win solutions that consider the needs and rights of all parties involved.
In the context of promoting equality, mediation and negotiation can provide a platform for marginalized groups to voice their concerns and have their rights recognized and respected.
We at the Europe Peace Foundation stand for peace negotiations as an essential process to achieving peace.
