In seeking to strengthen mediation practices in Africa, ACCORD conducts training, policy support, research, knowledge production and management on mediation. Thus, ACCORD documents the experiences, efforts and initiatives in the Peace Mediator newsletter, and further focuses on the good practices, lessons learnt, challenges and recommendations on mediation support. The Peace Mediator is an initiative under the AU Mediation Support Capacity Project, focusing on the mediation efforts undertaken by the project partners (the African Union, ACCORD and the Crisis Management Initiative (CMI)) as well as efforts by other actors working towards strengthening mediation support in Africa. A key highlight of this issue is the establishment of the African Union’s African Network of Women in Conflict Prevention and Mediation (FemWise-Africa).
