This handbook contains 47 practical exercises to help negotiation and mediation trainers make their trainings more gender-sensitive. By focusing on the intersection between mediation, gender equality and interactive didactics, the handbook seeks to support participatory and consensus-oriented decision making in situations of conflict. In the words of Jeremy Brickhill, Director of the Zimbabwe Peace and Security Programm: “The strength of this handbook is its focus on practice, rather than theory, and thus on the pragmatic approach to gender inclusion, rather than simply on normative frameworks. The result is a set of tools and exercises which can work effectively on the realities mediators actually face.” You can also order a hard copy for 20 CHF at mediation[at]sipo.gess.ethz.ch.
