In its capacity as a member of the Mediation Support Network (MSN) WANEP through its Executive Director, Mr Emmanuel Bombande, participated and made significant contributions in the MSN meeting which
took place in November in Mexico. The meeting focused on inclusion and participation in mediation processes.
These meetings provide the needed platform for WANEP to share case studies on local level mediation efforts using a bottom-up approach at transforming relationships between the communities and creating policy framework for structural change. Experience garnered at the MSN meeting is contributing to the nature of support WANEP is giving to the newly established Mediation Facilitation Division of ECOWAS and the recommendation to the AU Panel of the Wise during the 10th anniversary of the PSC.
