Research

Grounded in academia, we aim at leveraging interdisciplinary knowledge and research of related sciences to contribute to the advancement of mediation. This involves for instance utilizing insights from communication theory, cultural studies, and psychology regarding the development of conflict dynamics, communication in conflict situations, and cross-cultural communication.

Forum

The CMC serves as a professional platform and forum for convening stakeholders, facilitating dialogue, fostering collaboration and disseminating knowledge on mediation. In particular, the CMC regularly organizes events like seminars, lectures, and conferences bringing together experts, practitioners, and stakeholders from diverse backgrounds in Asia and beyond to discuss emerging trends, challenges, and innovations in conflict resolution.

For past and future events check out here.

Advocacy & Policy Development

As an advocate of mediation in Asia and convinced that strengthening mediation serves the rule of law, foreign investment and a more peaceful society, the CMC promotes knowledge on mediation and policies that contribute to a normative and infrastructural environment favorable for the recourse to mediation in conflict resolution.

Focal Areas of Interest

Beyond the general interest in all practical and theoretical issues concerning mediation, the CMC currently pursues a particular interest in three major thematic complexes, the first two of which are partially interconnected. These are:

 

  • Cross-Border and Cross-Cultural Mediation;
  • ESG- and supply chain related conflicts; and
