More than just an association
in-Mediation, this abbreviation is quite meaningful. It grew out of our international approach, when looking for a common term of “integrierte Mediation”. In English it is “integrated mediation”. In Latvian it for example is integrētā mediācija. On the first glance it looks like the letters ‘in’ are what all the languages have in common. You find it in “in-tegrētā mediācija”, in “in-tegrated mediation” and in “integrierte Mediation”. Unfortunately in French and Estonian we have to use other terms as the grammar is different. However “in” has been grown up with us and it became our brand. Thus we are talking about in-Mediation when we talk about integrated mediation.
To provide an overview at first let’s add the elements of Integrated Mediation like pieces of a puzzle drawing the complete picture in order to understanding what makes in-mediation to what it is. The formula gathering all the elements makes us an active mediation centre, where everything concerning mediation is coming together.
The first and biggest association of Integrated Mediation has been founded 2001 in Germany. Then associations in Austria, Latvia and Switzerland have been founded. These all are legal entities. Beyond that we have different locations abroad on the way to become an own association. Find the countries of Integrated Mediation in that carousel Bellow please. More about our association and organizational structures you will find under the menu item association.
It’s a long way still to go until mediation is understood correctly and established in dignity. There are many networks. International ones also (find the list at “internationale Organisationen“). Integrated Mediation is an established one with a huge potential and great ideas.
