The guidance paper looks into some of the key concepts for mediation scoping: what is the definition of scoping? What are the main stages? What should a scoping team look like? How can scoping mission be followed up?
The knowledge collected for this document was accumulated from existing mediation literature, the past experience of mediatEUr team members, and two pilot scoping missions (Kosovo and Myanmar) funded by the Swedish Foreign Ministry in the run up to the founding of the EIP.
In conjunction with the report “Conducting an Assessment Before Operation Deployment — A Case Study from Kosovo, 2013”, this document contributes to mediatEUr’s growing internal knowledge on the development of mediation scoping missions, and can support the work of organisations like the European Institute of Peace.
