    ADVISORY BUREAU FOR SOCIAL AND COMMUNITY MEDIATION

    In the last decade the study and the practice of mediation has expanded in various fields, revealing different profiles and claiming for complex and renewed professional competencies and action strategies. In line with European Union concerns and guidelines, we have witnessed in fact the value of mediation as an alternative mode of conflict resolution, whose aims and processes are as diverse as the areas of focus. The reasons for its renewed interest and social, political, educational and cultural prominence are associated mainly with the complexity of today’s problems, expectations, policies and systems. The deepening of the democratic system, economic globalization and the development of information and communication technologies have given, effectively, new impetus to social and economic relations, stressing the transformation of relations between citizens and between them and the services and businesses . This project involves an Advisory Bureau for Social and Community Mediation (ABSCM) which is inscribed in a multidisciplinary interest and participation logical under the coordination of local and national partners, stemming from the nature and multidimensionality of interpersonal, social, economic and political conflicts and the actors involved. This factor enhances a variety of target audiences in terms of training, research and intervention, which is an asset for the ABSCM implementation. It involves partners with consolidated knowledge (theoretical and operative) in the field of mediation, coming from different countries: England, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Spain and Portugal. It integrates Universities, Associations, Training Institutes, and a staff of Professional/Academic people.
