Conflict Resolution and Peer Mediation Toolkit
The Conflict Resolution and Peer Mediation Toolkit provides the training notes, handouts, sample agendas, and resource templates to initiate a peer mediation program for youth.
IREX and partner organization Foundation for Tolerance International (FTI) created the toolkit to support the creation of peer mediation programs at schools in Kyrgyzstan as part of the Youth Leadership for Peace Project funded by the United States Institute of Peace (USIP).
After receiving training on conflict prevention, peer mediation, and how to use the toolkit, teachers and youth from the Batken and Chui regions of Kyrgyzstan initiated peer mediation programs at 16 schools. From January 2013 to June 2013, peer mediators held more than 60 mediations, with 90% of mediations resulting in a signed mediation agreement.
