Ethical and methodological principles of mediation
This contribution will consider the figure of the mediator in European history and the links that can be established presently with the ethical stance of the mediator. Across the centuries, European political history has been replete with wars, the handling of which has happily culminated in the form of treaties. But what is of most interest to us here is not so much their impact but the process of their gestation, and specifically the advance work of mediators in reaching their conclusion.
