n African Journal on Conflict Resolution - Mediation and conflict resolution in South and Southern Africa : a personal account of the past 30 years

Volume 13, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 1562-6997


This article is a personal account of my involvement with mediation and facilitation over the past 30 years.

It does not purport to be a comprehensive or systematic account of the growing impact of these processes both in preventing and resolving conflict in our country and beyond. It therefore does not focus on organisations outside my own spheres of involvement, like the African Centre for the Constructive Resolution of Disputes and the Centre for Conflict Resolution, whose important contributions I readily acknowledge.
The insights and experiences reflected in the piece nevertheless point to an ever widening application of the processes across a range of disciplines and tell something of the rich contribution they have made to making South Africa a better, and safer, place.
