What we believe in and what we target at: „Mediation is a social core skill that lies veiled within each of us.“
By promoting a constructive dialogue within an area of mutual respect and non-escalated armed conflict (previously named: 'culture of peace‘ - read more), it is intended to create 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.“
We offer consultancies, conferences, research projects, and an 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. „Ignorance is no acceptable option.“ Read more…
