The Mediation Training Program

The program aimed to provide the theoretical background, as well as the practical skills needed by the future Romanian mediators.

    • Introduction to Mediation (Mediation I)
    • Alternative Dispute Resolution
    • Conflict Analysis

and 2 advanced modules, for practitioners, Mediation II and Mediation III.

The practical unit consisted of a case study that was conducted by a student under the supervision of an FDC trainer, as well as participation in eight hours of role – play exercises with members of the Romanian Mediators' Network.


    • 38 mediators from NGOs and local administration institutions were trained;
    • A training manual was created;
    • 4 case studies were created and used during the training activities;
    • 9 role play exercises were created and used ;
    • A permanent online communication system for the graduates of the program was established, allowing for consultancy and technical assistance to be provided.
