Dear Visitor, welcome to the media presence of the World Mediation Organization. We believe that „Mediation is a social core skill that lies veiled within each of us.“ By using the term of Mediation, we want you to understand that Mediation is not a single method but more likely a conglomerate of diverse competencies and skills. By promoting a constructive dialogue within an area of mutual respect and non-escalated armed conflict (previously named: ‚culture of peace‘), it is intended to  make the individual reflect in order to identify a personal’s point of view, to raise awareness towards social and political conceptions, and to communicate knowledge that may assist in creating enduring solutions to conflicts and tensions created by human interactions, states and organizations.

WMO Program Advisor, Professor emeritus William Zartman, on our activities: „I am quite impressed with the ambition and organization of the WMO as it seeks to bring together the diverse experiences of mediators – often grassroots mediators – throughout the world and to learn from them. We all need to expand and improve our awareness and practice of mediation.“

What we offer and what we stand in for: We try to equip individuals as well as future generations in general with tools of Critical Thinking and Conflict Resolution Competencies by offering a free educational program that is available to everybody. Reaching everybody means that Prof. Erdmann created an educational concept that is acceptable and practical within every type of culture. This cross-border and cross-cultural training does not intend to impose a western style of Applied Mediation on another culture, but it deals with a sensible core, or the point within the circle. This core emulsifies with the cultural background and language of the student and allows him or her to become a unique inner border professional. In this way, WMO is able to offer the only worldwide achievable training that respects and works with global diversity. We believe that „Ignorance is no acceptable option.“ Read more
