The purpose of the debriefing was to better understand how mediators engage in and with an institutional team and to draw reflections for the practice of mediation. The debriefing covered issues such as mandate, values, methodology, gender, and working in an institutional structure. It was not a full debriefing of the SBT, and reflections in this paper are solely insights into their personal journeys and candid reflections as practitioners. Their observations, however, help to generate awareness of the human side of international mediation for both young professionals and institutions considering development of their own mediation support structures.
This edition presents lessons on:
- Working with a mandate
- The independence of a mediation expert;
- Iimpartiality and values
- Ggender in the field of international mediation.
- Being a member of an international team.
