Abstract and Keywords

The last thirty years have seen a significant growth in the use and recognition of mediation in both the domestic and international spheres. The changes in international relations that influence the whole world of diplomacy have also altered considerably how mediation is practised. The shift from ‘club’ to ‘network’ diplomacy is clearly visible in the field of mediation. This article focuses on mediation as an instrument for international diplomacy and conflict resolution, reflecting the experiences gained through the author’s involvement as a mediator in the peace processes in Namibia, Kosovo, and Aceh, Indonesia.

Keywords: mediators, international diplomacy, international relations, conflict resolution, peace process, Namibia, Kosovo, Aceh
