Tradition- & Faith-Oriented Insider Mediators (TFIMs) in Conflict Transformation

Potential, Constraints, & Opportunities for Collaborative Support (Baseline Study: Synopsis)

On the basis of empirical knowledge acquired through case studies in Myanmar (Burma), Southern Thailand, Lebanon, Colombia, Kenya and Mali, this study conceptualises and contextualises a specific set of religious and traditional peacemakers as tradition- & faith-oriented insider mediators (TFIMs). In considering their peace mediation roles, potential and the constraints under which they work, it also reflects on the opportunities for collaborative support linking various actors within conflict contexts.
