The two-day conference entitled “Conflict regulation and mediation in European cities”, that took place in Angers (France) on May 6th and 7th 2004 developed a common approach to mediation in European cities in several roundtable discussions.
A wealth of mediation projects from all over Europe were presented in five roundtable discussions, looking at aspects of restorative justice, social cohesion and mediation, cultural mediation, mediation at night and in the streets, and at conflict resolution in partnerships.
