Women’s Peace Table
Peace Palace, 17:00-21:00 This ‘Peace Table’ invites men and women, in tradition of UN Resolution 1325, to work on equal women’s representation at peace tables and on increasing the participation of women in conversations on global peace and security. “It is not about counting women, but about making women count”.
MBBI promotes a gendered approach to peace-building and has trained many women in its ITI’s. At this Peace Table, we will host speakers on the subject and create new encounters and insights.
Workshop by Douglas E. Noll,
“De-Escalating Strong Emotions in Negotiation, Diplomacy and Conflict”

All workshop participants are invited directly afterwards (free attendance) to the the MBBI Ten Year Anniversary Celebration.

MBBI Conference 2017
‘Keeping People at the Heart of Conflict in Charge’
Peace Palace, Thursday 11.00-21.00 Friday 9.30-18.00 . Mediators Beyond Borders works on capacity building at the grassroots and mediation advocacy at the high levels (first tier, UN) negotiations. Now it is time to bring the two together at this Conference and create a safe space for all the people involved.
We want to work on a community of people committed to keep every stakeholder in charge of creating sustainable peace. We believe that the way to do that is through creating safe spaces in which open dialogues can take place.
To accomplish this community, one conference is not enough. We would like you to continue with us if you like what you experience. The beginning of this community is the outcome of the conference.
Friday afternoon: viewing of the documentary THE PEACEMAKER, in the presence of Mr O’Malley and film maker Jim Demo, followed by Q & A.
Discount: MBBI members register and go early bird:
