The UPF-BSM Chair of Citizen Mediation was created to develop systematized knowledge on restorative and reconstructive social practices with the aim of strengthening bonds between citizens and the local world with an intersectional perspective.
For a few years we have been witnessing events that, as a society, place us in a position which disrupts our daily lives, and which increases discomfort, and personal and social tension. This fact challenges the local world to increase spaces promoting coexistence and the strengthening of community bonds and to do so in a close and empathetic way.
The Chair gives us the opportunity to create and transfer academic knowledge related to restorative practices and to provide tools for professionals who support people and those who work to influence citizen coexistence.
The Chair of Citizen Mediation of the UPF-BSM and the Area of Equality and Social Sustainability of the Barcelona Council will respond to the current needs of society with the aim of offering tools to local entities for promoting inclusive coexistence and encouraging social cohesion.
The chair will be co-directed by a combination of the directors of the Master in Professional Mediation and student interns.
