Lecture: Marching Orders - Exploring the Mediation Mandate


Location: C103 Hesburgh Center for International Studies

Very little research has been done on the mediation mandate. The neglect is significant because the mandate determines the mediator’s objectives, regulates his/her strategy and influences whether or not the conflict parties are receptive to the mediator. Laurie Nathan, Professor and Director of the Center for Mediation in Africa at the University of Pretoria in South Africa and Kroc Institute Visiting Research Fellow, breaks new ground by identifying and analyzing the different types of mediation mandate and the disputes and tensions they generate.

All are welcome.
