Amsterdam Dialogue 2013

mediatEUr participates in the Amsterdam Dialogue organised by Dialogue Advisory Group (DAG), Human Rights Watch (HRW), and International Crisis Group (Crisis Group) on 11 October 2013.
mediatEUr is collaborating with the Netherlands Institute for Multiparty Democracy (NIMD) to help draw lessons from its political party dialogue work in post-conflict contexs, in particular in Burundi and South Sudan. The project will entail debriefing the main facilitator of those dialogues; and synthesising lessons learnt from those engagements. 
Responding effectively to emerging or on-going crises requires identifying people with the right profile and expertise at the right time, and ensuring they can be where they are needed most, at short notice. This is a key challenge. Given this challenge, mediatEUr, together with partners Berghof Foundation, ESSEC-Irene, and swisspeace, is embarking on a new project to provide conflict prevention and mediation support to the European External Action Service and its partners.  
mediatEUr Senior Associate Brendan McAllister shared his experience in peace mediation in a training for the European Security and Defence College's Course on Peacebuilding delivered on the week of 21-28 June 2013.
