    Mediators Beyond Borders International's three primary strategies for promoting  nonviolent resolution of international conflicts are: 1. Capacity building projects that build local organizational and peace-building skills; 2. Advocacy projects that promote the appropriate use of mediation worldwide, and 3. Encouraging dialogue over difficult, divisive and dangerous issues. This workshop focuses on dialogue, using the experience of MBBI team members who trained Greek facilitators to conduct  dialogues  focused on migration issues in Greece.  The Athens Migration Dialogue aims to educate, coordinate and build capacity  by training citizens in Dialogue, in order to facilitate peaceful change and enhance community problem-solving in Greece.

    • Anna Spain, University of Colorado Law School ;
    • Linda Bishai, US Institute of Peace
    Over the past few decades, non-international armed conflicts have proliferated. As the UN Security Council's authorization to intervene into Libya and the D.R.C. but not Syria demonstrates, the international community is struggling to figure out how to promote peace in this new context. When is the use of force permissible? Is mediation effective during armed conflict? What is peacebuilding? And, ultimately, is there a duty to promote peace? Join experts from the United Nations, U.S. Institute of Peace and Mediators Beyond Borders International as we engage in a robust discussion about how to achieve peace in today's world.
