Social Mediation Is A Powerful Tool For Resolving Small-Scale Conflicts

Social Mediation Is A Powerful Tool For Resolving Small-Scale Conflicts

The Law School of UCLAN Cyprus and the Interdisciplinary Centre for Law, Alternative and Innovative Methods (ICLAIM) are happy to announce that they have successfully concluded their new project on social mediation, which has been supported by the British High Commission in Cyprus.

The project worked with communities, young people, stakeholders, civil society and professionals in Cyprus to promote social mediation as a tool to tackle communal conflicts. The project consisted of a set of four bi-communal workshops on social mediation, followed by more than 70 attendees who received a certificate for their participation. The final workshop took place at UCLan Cyprus in Pyla on the 23rd and 24th February 2020. Certificates of participation were presented to more than 70 attendees who followed the workshops.

Deputy High Commissioner Ian Whitting said:

“We feel that this training brought educators, civil society, lawyers and community workers across the communities together to create a pool of confident social mediators. Social Mediators that can apply and inform their communities about the use of social mediation in small-scale community conflicts, and empowering them to facilitate their resolution.”

Social 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, conceptualise 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.

To enable trained social mediators to draft a strategy for social mediation in Cyprus and beyond, and launch the Social Mediators Network, there will be a conference on Social Mediation at the UCLan campus in Pyla on 4th April 2020.
