REGISTER NOW to the AGM and/or seminar! Registrations will close on 10 May.

This one-day seminar will include keynote presentations, interactive sessions and moderated panel discussions with interesting speakers from Germany and not only! Among others, speakers will reflect on the use of mediation in involving refugees, present local projects of conflict resolution in intercultural settings, compare mediation practices across Europe (mostly, Germany, England, Norway) and further disseminate the findings of our recently concluded project ALTERNATIVE on RJ in intercultural settings.

The seminar will take place in the GLS Campus – Kastanienallee 82, 10435 Berlin. This venue is centrally located in Prenzlauer Berg, a part of East Berlin in the district of Pankow. From our local organisers, we heard that this district is the largest contiguous redeveloped old building area of the late 19th century in Germany. The settlement started right after the reunification, therefore this district is the forerunner of all trendy neighborhoods in Berlin. It has a lot of charm and offers numerous possibilities for going-out. This lively and fashionable district in former times attracted especially younger people and alternative ways of living – mainly students and artists. In the meantime primarily it has become a place for wealthy families. Picturesque squares and streets are no rarity there and countless cafes, shops, pubs and clubs turn night into day and this part of Berlin into a tourist magnet – particularly the quarters around Kollwitz and Helmholtzplatz.
