Martine K. Miller,
Its my pleasure to hear that you have direct and significant expertise in Nepal as well as other many countries. Me, engaged in peace process in Nepal, would like to exchange your experience through this network in the future days to come , if you don't feel bother.
i am waiting for your response
with best regards
Martine, I only just found your e-mail. I would be happy to exchange information with you. I am keeping tabs on the relationship between Colombia and other South and Central American conflicts, although there are other things going on now (such as the autonomy bid on Bolivia..). What aspects of environment are you interested in in particular? Thanks for getting in touch. José
I just saw your comment right now. I would be happy to communicate with you about my work in Somalia. Where and when have you worked there? And for whom? Where are you at present?
Your invitation to add as a friend is honouring and so fast that I did not even have time to upload anything much about me on the site.- being caught up in intense work here in Burundi. And I would always say yes in principle.
This time however, I want to invite you into my reality. I think this website is a great opportunity to link up professionally as well as personally and I would like to use it as such – Let’s take it one step beyond formality. And beyond the risk of superficiality, given the overwhelming effect of the many things we are doing and many people we are interacting with, want in our lives, need to learn from and with.
Please take a look at the postings I have made. If you get me as a friend, you may get a bigger portion than you might expect and I want you to be warned=:o)
Get back to me when you have a chance.
Your professional experience sounds impressive. Would like to hear some more details.
Sunshines from Bujumbura,
Hi, Martine! Thank you for the invitation, I am happy to accept it. Unfortunately, I don't have a picture of mine at the computer I am unsing today to write to you. Will revert to you from the other computer next week, with a picture and more details about myself and probable ways of cooperation.
Greetings Martine, Thanks for the invite, I see you have a very broad experience in lots of conflict countries. I look forward in hearing some of your experiences in some of those countries, as well as sharing my experiences as well.
My understanding is that the Amsterdam program is THE study abroad program for criminal law. I'm truly looking forward to it. I am also trying to get some work/internship/apprenticeship/assistance position with The European Court of Human Rights before the program so I could be in Europe all summer. If so, you never know, maybe we can meet.
Stay in touch and I'll let yo know more about my plans in the future.
It seems we share some common interests so I wanted to make my introduction. I'm Chris from New Orleans. I'm studying Comparative legal systems at Tulane Law School and am very interested in Human Rights and Mediation and Negotiation. Given our common interests it would be good to start communication so we can refer to each other for advice in the future. Please take a minute to view my page and leave a message if you like.
P.S. I am attending the Amsterdam Uni's International Criminal Law Summer Program in July-Aug. Do you know any places I should go while I'm there outside the normal "tourist traps?"
Peace and love to you Martine!Thank you very much for your invitation and I am pleased to have you as my friend.I really enjoy to be in the family/community of peaceful people.
I am sorry to send you email a bit late, I was in the workshop for three days and now I am back in my office to check my emails and realised that you invited me.
Keep in touch and I hope to hear from you

I gained my practical experience in mediation working for a community ADR program run by a local court system, then worked for a while as staff at a local community mediation center, and finally as an EEO/Redress mediator working for the US Postal Service. I was originally certified as a mediator by the Supreme Court of Virginia after receiving training from a local mediation center which also offered training, I had to pay for the training (it was maybe $300-400.00). Then I had to observe several mediations conducted by certified mediators and co-mediate several cases, again with certified mediators. The specific requirements for this vary by state in the US. My personal opinion is that training is not enough...you need to get your hands dirty and actually mediate as many cases as possible in order to get a feel for what mediation really is and how it works. If you can find a mentor this would be excellent and would greatly increase your learning curve. My advice: find a local mediation center which offers training, and then in all likelihood you will have do your time as a volunteer mediator. Many people want to do this work, and so slots for volunteer mediators are a bit hard to come by. But if you are willing to volunteer, and build some supportive relationships, you should be able to get the opportunity to do some practice- absolutely essential if you want to be able to train in mediation or to offer mediation services for a fee. My private email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to come back to me with any questions should they arise...
Thanks Martine for your message. Nice to hear all about your work in Cambodia and it means great thing for me and Cambodian as a whole. Yeah, we can meet up sometimes once I'm back from my study; I will finish my academic year in September. Or you can share what you have done in Cambodia if you don't mind. I'm looking forward to be in touch with you.
All the best,
Good to hear from you as well. At the moment, I am at the University of Bradford, Peace Studies Department, UK. I will be in Addis beginning from the second week of April 2008. Use the same e-mail then we might meet there.
