ABOUT THE AUTHORS: “The United States Institute of Peace works to prevent, mitigate, and resolve violent conflict around the world. USIP does this by engaging directly in conflict zones and by providing analysis, education, and resources to those working for peace. Created by Congress in 1984 as an independent, nonpartisan, federally funded organization, USIP’s more than 300 staff work at the Institute’s D.C. headquarters, and on the ground in the world’s most dangerous regions.

“The United Nations Department of Political Affairs’ Mediation Support Unit, established in 2006, works closely with the Department’s regional divisions to plan and support mediation efforts in the field. With the goal of supporting relevant actors to achieve a just and sustainable peace through the pacific settlement of disputes, the unit engages in and supports a wide range of operational activities  and projects and works closely with a number of partners.

INTENDED USER: “The series is being designed for experienced mediation practitioners and negotiators, but will be a valuable resource for students and policymakers.”
