Peer Coaching „Mediation and Diplomacy“


As part of the second Peer Coaching Mediation and Diplomacy, ten high ranking diplomats of the German Federal Foreign Office as well as members of the German Bundestag met with three leading figures in international peace mediation for an interactive peer coaching.

Martin Griffiths of the European Institute of Peace, Priscilla Hayner, member of the UN Standby Mediation Team und David Lanz from swisspeace shared their vast experiences and first-hand insights from peace mediation processes ranging from Syria and Libya, Colombia and Kenya to Ukraine.

The two-day coaching at Castle Liebenberg combined theoretical background with a lot of participatory elements and “one-on-one” coaching sessions.
