Conciliation Resources formed a strategic partnership with Brussels-based mediation support organisation, mediatEUr in 2019. This gradually brought together the work of both organisations in support of peace processes around the world, until in 2021, mediatEUr was renamed Conciliation Resources EU*.
Conciliation Resources EU has built up a strong reputation in Brussels and with other EU countries since it began in 2007. Developing a solid track record of providing mediation support services, training and personnel deployments, we continue to focus on geographic and thematic areas which align with EU interests, in particular:
- Geographic: Sub-Saharan Africa and the South Caucasus
- Thematic: Gender, peace and security in peace processes; Inclusive mediation including engagement with armed groups; and climate change and peacebuilding.
Conciliation Resources EU represents Conciliation Resources with EU officials and peer organisations in Brussels, including the European Peacebuilding Liaison Office (EPLO). As a member of the EPLO we take part in Civil Society and Dialogue Network Discussions with EU officials and contribute to the development of policy on mediation and conflict prevention for the EU and in support of national governments. We are part of consortia implementing two EU service contracts: the European Resources for Mediation Support (ERMES) and the Facility on Justice in Conflict and Transitions (FJCT).
