The Master of Advanced Studies ETH Mediation in Peace Processes (MAS ETH MPP) is built on a close partnership between ETH Zurich and the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), as well as various foreign ministries (e.g. Germany, Finland and Sweden). The MAS is also supported by international organisations such as the United Nations (UN), European Union (EU) and Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). It brings together the most qualified mediation practitioners and researchers the world has to offer.
The MAS ETH MPP provides participants with the necessary knowledge, skills and techniques to mediate violent political conflicts. Currently, this is the only MAS programme that professionalises the training of mediators working in peace processes.
A number of scholarships are provided by the countries supporting the MAS. These scholarships will be made available to cover the course fee, travel and accommodation costs of participants from non-OECD countries who could not otherwise afford to participate. These scholarships will be awarded at the discretion of the MAS ETH MPP management.
The MAS ETH MPP targets future mediators who seek to work in formal track one mediation teams; in conflict contexts where there is no formal mediator; in mediation support units and in research-practitioner entities.
Deadline for scholarship applications is 8 July 2017.
