ETH Zurich is uniquely suited to establish a course such as “Mediation in Peace Processes”, as it combines relevant research with experience of training on mediation and has a rich network of academic and policy oriented partners both in Switzerland and at the global level. Relevant ETH research areas include: conflict causes, mediation in peace processes, negotiation, collective decision-making, development cooperation, democratisation, institutionalisation, natural resource management, governance, interdisciplinary and systemic approaches.
