On February 3-7, 2020 Eastern European Centre for Multiparty Democracy (EECMD) in partnership with Result Mediation, organized a five-day intensive training on mediation in Chisinau. The training gathered our alumni, who represent the political parties, public institutions, and civil society organizations in Moldova.
The Core Mediation Training is a compact, intensive and practical training devised to bring participants’ negotiating and mediation skills up to a professional level. The two blocks of training included intensive role-playing under the supervision of experienced mediators. During the training, participants obtained a deep knowledge of everything needed to align differing interests and to bring parties together through mediation. They experienced being a mediator and being a party in extensive role-playing. Additionally, the training was an excellent opportunity for alumni to meet each other in person and share their experiences. The EECMD organized the Core Mediation Training already the second time. On November 25-29, 2019, the EECMD gathered its alumni from Kyrgyzstan in Bishkek.
The training was conducted in the framework of the EU funded project ‘Regional Engagement to Advance the Creation of Hubs for Democracy (REACH for Democracy)’. This EU-funded project is implemented in Benin, Georgia, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Morocco, and Tunisia and aims to create an international network of young democrats from across the political spectrum, who will work together to make their political systems more plural and inclusive.
