Culture and Religion in Mediation, Center for Security Studies ETH Zurich
The Culture and Religion in Mediation (CARIM) Program is a joint initiative of the CSS and the Thematic Area “Religion, Politics, Conflict” of the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA). Promote a non- judgmental approach to the role of religion in conflict in order to further mediation and conflict transformation processes which lead to mutually acceptable outcomes and co- existence between actors with different worldviews. Offer direct support to conflict actors and third parties engaged in mediation and conflict transformation processes. This can include mediation training, coaching, assistance with process design, research on particular aspects of the conflict, facilitation of contacts and identification of experts.
