RSA Friday Conversations: Community mediation in the US as democratic participation

Fellowship Event

 - 

Online (through Zoom)

  • Fellowship
  • Fellowship in Action

At the heart of the US community mediation movement are principles of democratic participation, drawing on citizen rights and responsibilities.

It evolved along two different paths: the social and political activism of the 1960s, primarily as a response to the Civil Rights Act, and out offers, both within and outside of government, to reform the justice system.

Community mediation centres create space so that those in conflict have the ability and power to make decisions for themselves, presenting an opportunity for citizens to participate in the prevention and early intervention of conflicts as an alternative to institutional mechanisms.

Upon finishing a four-year term as Chair of the National Association from Community Mediation, Renata Valree will share her insights and experience around a US perspective on community mediation.

Renata is Associated Professor at CSU Dominguez Hills in the Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peace-building programme, and Co-Chair for the Community Mediation and Restorative Justice Section of the Association for Conflict Resolution.
