The Youth Exchange Mitigation Youths took place from February 4 to 15, 2019. It involved 54 young people from France, Romania and Slovakia. The main objective of our project was to bring these participants closer to the concept of mediation as a means of conflict resolution. We have actively involved them in activities related to the subject, through role-plays and real situations.
The project reunited 2 organisations from 2 programme countries:
- France - Ensemble Partout
- Romania - Turbulencia
- Slovakia - Iniciativa mladych
1. WHO CAN BE A MEDIATOR? To become a mediator in France, Romania and Slovakia you need to graduate with a master degree which is at least 3 years. You need to have a good medical and mental health and a clear criminal record. You need to be older than 18. However, in Romania, they must have 3 years of work experience.
2. EDUCATION REQUIREMENT The mediator should finish an university, and after it to absolve a special course for mediation and have a master degree in this field. In Romania the course last 80 hours, in France 4 months, and in Slovakia 100 days. They need to repeat it every 2 years. The courses are organized by special trainers and are authorized by law. In France, for more specific sessions of mediation they need to have a law or psychology certificate.
3.HOW IS MEDIATION SUPPORTED BY THE STATE: In France and Romania, the national education can finance scholarships, to help students in universities or pupils. In Slovakia the state does not involve, so if the mediation is needed they should contact a private mediator. In these countries the concept of mediation is not well known, but awareness is slowly increasing.
