Mediating in Africa: Interviews with Experts

As a part of its African Union Mediation Support Capacity Project, CMI presents fifteen videos on different aspects of peace mediation. In each of these fifteen videos, the spotlight is on regional experts, from professors to AU special representatives. The experts reflect on more specific themes, such as the role of women and regional economic communities in mediation processes. Among the other themes discussed are the meaning of impartiality, the particularities of border and election-related disputes and the role of civil society in mediation - with a focus on Africa.

The purpose of these videos is to share good practice through easily accessible video clips. As an organization that works to resolve conflicts and build sustainable peace, CMI hopes that these videos make you not only reflect on the different aspects of mediation but also gain valuable insights into the experiences of mediation experts.
