Date change for the Asia Pacific Mediation Leadership Summit


The earlier posted "Asia Pacific Mediation Leadership Summit - FROM TALK TO ACTION" date of 6 - 8 July 2011 has changed to 2 - 4 December 2011, due to the Thai elections that took place early July this year.


The Summit Coordination Committee and all collaborators are working hard to make this an unforgettable event! For more information, do have a look on:

Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)

The Asia Pacific Mediation Leadership Summit is being collaboratively designed and hosted by the Asia Pacific Mediation Forum (APMF), Thailand’s renowned King Prajadhipok Institute for Peace and Democracy (KPI), Ministry of Justice (MoJ), Ministry of Public Health’s Center for Peace in Health Care (MoPH), Chulalongkorn University’s Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies, The Rotary Peace Centre and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP). Some themed collaborators to date include the Center for Humanitarian Dialogue and Meta Culture.

Summit Aim
To engage a range of experienced academics, mediators, conflict transformation and peacebuilding practitioners from different cultural, organisational and professional backgrounds who are culturally fluent, creative and innovative, and want to contribute (and build on) their knowledge and expertise and proactively evolve the way that conflicts are mediated, transformed and built in the Asia-Pacific region.

Summit Objectives
1. To evolve capacity, advance collaborations, build networks and promote cross-cultural awareness and understanding of mediation, conflict transformation and peacebuilding processes throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
2. To mine the collective depths of the delegates’ expertise and skills in order to inspire strategies for change that can advance mediation, conflict transformation and peacebuilding processes that promote peace throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
3. To evolve effective ‘themed’ action plans from focused, cross cutting, facilitated round-table discussions that can be implemented by delegates and their affiliates, and which have real potential to advance mediation, conflict transformation and peacebuilding processes in culturally fluent ways throughout the Asia-Pacific region.
4. To inspire and support initiatives to advance mediation, conflict transformation and peacebuilding processes globally.

Summit Format
1. We are identifying cross-cutting, key and sub-themes, in collaboration with participating delegates in advance of the Summit via an interactive internet site and/or an on-line survey.
2. We are inviting inspirational Keynote speakers for each of the chosen themes to summarise the key issues and their relevance to the Asia-Pacific region in order to stimulate round-table Action Group discussions.
3. We will identify and invite volunteer expert facilitators and recorders who can focus and inspire a number of round table discussions over three days, each table with a focus on a different topic.
4. Participants are invited to submit a paper of 2000 words prior to the Summit which addresses one of the themes. Papers will be distributed to all participants and the authors will be invited to re-work and re-submit their paper for peer review post-Summit for possible inclusion in an edited book – see the guidelines on the Summit website.

Summit Themes
The themes for round-table discussions are currently being developed with the collaborators and with participating delegates on-line prior to the Summit via the interactive Summit website – they will be cross-cutting and of interest to people from all fields of practice in the Asia-Pacific region. Upon registration, delegates are invited, as change makers, to engage directly in their theme(s) of interest.
