Discussion Points

The annual meetings of the Mediation Support Network (MSN) generally have a topical focus related to mediation. The “MSN Discussion Points” (ISSN 2413-2020) summarize key aspects of the MSN’s discussions on the meeting’s topic. The “MSN Discussion Points” do not provide a comprehensive or consensus view of MSN members, but rather act as a reflection of key issues that were discussed. They aim to act as useful food for thought for all those interested in peace mediation.
