Mediation is a tactic that has been used in conflict resolution for a long time. These conflicts can exist incountries, in communities, or even within oneself. The main idea is to know not only that these types of conflicts exist, but more importantly, that they are all related to one another. The process of understanding plays a key role in solving conflicts, as opposed to the many circumstances where compromise is made with a gun pressed to one’s head or a treaty shoved down one’s throat. The feeling of interconnectedness is important so we canacknowledge that although we all come from different backgrounds, different cultures, and different countries, we are all linked back to each other as human beings.
