De Visu trainings

The Mediterranean Women Mediators Network organizes training activities for its members on gender mediations and related issues. These trainings contribute to enhancing the Network members’ skills and competences while also providing in-depth analysis on specific issues. Furthermore, these activities are also an opportunity for the mediators to meet each other, strengthen their ties and developing their sense of belonging to the Network.

“Training and experience sharing on inclusive and gendered mediation”

In 2019, the MWMN launched two sessions on “Training and Experience Sharing on Gendered Inclusive Mediation” that were conducted in Rome, one in English and one in French.  The trainings aimed at developing gender-sensitive conflict analysis competencies and at reinforcing mediation and negotiation skills.

The first session, in English, was held on April 8-12, 2019. Read the report here.

The French edition took place on June 10-14, 2019. Read the report here.


The activities de visu are combined with remote learning experiences as the Network also hosts webinars focusing on the “Women, Peace and Security” in different contexts, ranging from a more general perspective on how to include a gender perspective into conflict analysis,  to case studies on the role of women in specific conflicts. These webinars are held by international experts in the field and women peacebuilders operating in conflict areas.
