The organisation produces publications and practical training materials addressing the challenges facing mediators and offering options for overcoming them.. These are shared with the wider mediation community in order to contribute to the international policy debate surrounding mediation processes and ways to increase their success..

  • Title: Humanitarian Dialogue | HD Centre
    Descriptive info: Darfur, Sudan.. Humanitarian Dialogue in Geneva.. As part of its conflict mediation and dialogue activities, and where political dialogue may be difficult or impossible, the HD Centre undertakes mediation on a humanitarian basis.. Humanitarian mediation enables the parties in conflict to address key issues, such as safe access and protection of civilians, the special needs of women and children, displaced populations and any affected minority groups.. It is intended to complement and support potential peace efforts and keep open essential and discreet channels of communication.. Humanitarian mediation often provides a way to begin dialogue when other methods are impeded and it can engage non-State actors, who may otherwise be excluded, as well as United Nations and humanitarian agencies.. This can provide a valuable confidence-building process for subsequent peace negotiators.. The HD Centre’s Humanitarian Mediation Programme (HMP) is currently focusing on five projects: ongoing humanitarian mediation in Darfur, a regional humanitarian dialogue in Southeast Asia, a confidential project in Central Asia, mediation support to a global health campaign in four conflict-affected countries, and closed-door dialogue sessions in Geneva.. It plans to expand these projects into new areas, particularly in Africa.. Background.. The Humanitarian Mediation Progamme (HMP), formerly known as Civilian Protection in Africa (CIPA), was launched in 2007.. It draws  ...   Asia.. The HD Centre has undertaken various humanitarian mediation projects in Africa, Central Asia and Asia, in contexts where political dialogue has been non-existent or has not progressed while humanitarian issues remain unaddressed.. This type of mediation has also been used in post-conflict situations where unresolved humanitarian issues have resulted in ongoing tensions.. Objectives.. The Humanitarian Mediation Programme aims at improving commitment to humanitarian protection principles by parties in conflict areas and to improve the protection of civilians through increased humanitarian access.. It also intends to promote the incorporation of adequate humanitarian safeguards into peace processes, and in some cases to provide a softer entry point for negotiation when political processes are blocked..

From the Nakuru County peace accord (2010-2012) to lasting peace.. 26 October 2014 by Alice Wairimu Nderitu.. This case study provides a first analysis of the successful mediation process which took place in 2012 between two Kenyan communities who had taken up arms against each in the wake of the disputed Kenyan 2007 General Elections.. The Nakuru County Peace Accord signed in August 2012 and which resulted from this mediation process, ensured that, for the first time since 1992, a peaceful election took place in 2013.. Written by Alice Nderitu, one of the mediators in the peace process and member of the Kenyan National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC), the case study examines the post-election violence of 2007-2008 within a wider historical context of ethnic-based conflict.. It highlights the critical role of four groups – male Elders from the Gikuyu and the Kalenjin communities, the National Cohesion and Integration Commission (NCIC) working with the National Steering Committee on Conflict Management and Peace Building (NSC), and the HD Centre – who collaborated for a period of 16 months between 2010 and 2012 on this peace process.. The publication concludes with some lessons drawn from the process, including the challenge of securing peace and justice, as well as recommendations for ensuring the durability of the Peace Accord.. Africa Mediators' Retreat 2013 - Meeting Report.. 24 October 2014 by Paul Dziatkowiec, Sabina Avasiloae & Till Papenfuss.. The fourth Africa Mediators’ Retreat, which brings together experienced peacemaking actors to discuss conflict-related issues relevant to Africa today, took place in Zanzibar, Tanzania in November 2013.. More than 40 senior conflict mediators and peace process actors attended, together with key decision-makers, eminent thinkers and government representatives with significant experience in peacemaking across the African continent.. The event was co-hosted by the HD Centre, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Mwalimu Nyerere Foundation.. Three days of lively discussions covered a broad range of complex issues and peacemaking challenges across the continent including the role of the International Criminal Court in Africa; the role of religion in African politics: the mediator’s potential bridging role between religious and secular political stakeholders; assessing the potential for dialogue with extremist groups; the interplay between elections and conflicts in Africa; the role of the mediator in developing models for governance; and the utility of force during peacemaking.. This meeting report provides a summary of the discussions and highlights the issues which emerged during the retreat.. 1.. 2.. 3.. 4..
