The Centre for Mediation and Conflict Management is a practice centre providing a knowledge platform that aims to share resources and good practice on mediation, within the University and for the wider community.
As of May 2020, our co-directors are John Paul Hayes and Catherine Hobby. Our members form our Steering Committee; the Committee advises on all aspects of the Centre.
The Centre for Mediation and Conflict Management was established by staff mediators, coming from several areas of the University representing academic and professional services. We have now been joined by academics interested in researching mediation and conflict management.
Our mediators support the UEL Mediation Scheme co-ordinated by Nina Harding, the Mediation Officer who is a member of our Steering Committee. The Service offers mediation and support with conflict management to University Staff who have experienced work-based conflict. We are also members of the Mediators Community of Practice.
