Post-Graduate Certificate

In order to obtain the PGC, you may have finished the WMO Online Training or other training which will be evaluated on our side. Due to the signed MOU between WMO and EUCLID University, we are able to offer students and professionals the WMO / EUCLID Post Graduate Certificate in Mindful Mediation and Conflict Management without realizing further studies. EUCLID recognizes the content and the workload of the WMO training and thereby grants the corresponding certificate. Additionally, WMO graduates who wish to realize their Master‘s and / or Doctorate’s Degree at EUCLID (Pôle Universitaire Euclide) get this program evaluated and validated with an equivalency of up to 10 ECTS for a Master’s or a Ph.D. Program.

Euclid University states: ‘WMO and EUCLID have been partners for several years – a partnership formalized by the high-level memorandum of understanding – in view of their common goals in the field of mediation. The two organizations are remarkably complementary in the sense that EUCLID is a degree-granting institution focusing on global diplomacy whereas WMO is a network of professionals which focuses on international mediation and conflict evaluation. WMO has also demonstrated expertise in developing course material as well as organizing international seminars combining academic and civil society participants. Both organizations look forward to continuing to foster better knowledge and understanding of the increasingly important field of mediation at all levels of society.’

Daniel Erdmann states:

“This training intends to develop your conflict resolving competencies for an intercultural and non-armed environment. We believe that „Mediation is a social core skill that lies veiled within each of us.“ By using the term of Mindful 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 person’s point of view, to raise awareness towards social and political conceptions and responsibilities, and to communicate knowledge that may assist in creating enduring solutions to conflicts and tensions created by human interactions, states, and organizations...

Having understood the ordinary difficulties that result from superficial conflict resolution concepts, I investigated a possible solution to this problem, by deep listening to my proper inner voice. What I found, was the true core and a deep understanding of mediation, namely that it lies within each of us, being totally diverse and different from all other conceptions to be found outside of oneself. Your proper conception of mediation is built on your life experiences, your educational level, your dreams, and visions. So, it sounds only natural to not cut off these highly important pillars of your life that form your personality but to include them into your educational setting. Here, Mindful Mediation turned out being something bigger, broader and deeper rather than a simple definition of mediation. That is how I stumbled upon the proper interdisciplinary character of Mindful Mediation…”
