03 November 2020


Event description

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a surge of CyberMediation activities. Given the global lockdown and widespread travel restrictions, many mediators and mediation support actors increasingly rely on digital technologies to keep up the communication with conflict parties and stakeholders.

The panel, which includes DiploFoundation’s Vladimir Radunović (E-diplomacy and Cybersecurity Programmes Director), will explore how mediators can build trust in Cybermediation, by discussing past mediation experiences from an interdisciplinary perspective.

This session is organized by CyberMediation Network, swisspeace; the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue; Build Up, the United States Institute of Peace (USIP) the Centre for Strategic and International Studies in Jakarta (CSIS); DiploFoundation; the European External Action Service (EEAS); ICT4Peace; the Mediation Support Unit of the United Nations Department of Political and Peacebuilding Affairs.
