We believe that conflict is a natural part of our social lives. Moreover, through their constructive handling, interpersonal relations can be significantly strengthened. Hence, conflicts and their peaceful resolution are crucial in building communities and (re)establishing social bonds.
With our conflict resolution services we aim to disseminate the theory and methods of alternative dispute resolution (ADR). By integrating the peaceful conflict resolution approach into the everyday’s life, we promote the necessity of seeking common gains and building on real dialogue through conflict resolution.

Thanks to new attitudes arising from the mediation process, the parties can form an agreement in line with their common interests.
