Students from the universities of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland in Turiba get familiar with the field of mediation (0)

On 14th of August  Turiba University in a cooperation with 3 partner universities launched a Nordplus intensive course " Mediation in Civil and Criminal Cases”, which will take place for two weeks.

Mediation is an out-of-court way of resolving disputes. Mediation can take place both in civil cases (for example, in family, work or commercial disputes, etc.), both in criminal cases (when the perpetrator makes an agreement with the victim) and in administrative matters. Mediation is becoming more and more popular in Latvia and in the world. Both courts recommend to the parties to go to the mediator in order to resolve their dispute peacefully, as well as the disputants themselves before the court try to resolve the situation with the help of a mediator.

32 students from the universities of Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland participate in the mediation course. Students during the course acquire skills in managing the mediation process, develop intercultural communication skills, attend study visits, meet and discuss with experienced  lecturers and professionals from the special field.

This course is under the Nordplus program and the project is implemented by the Turiba University in a cooperation with 3 partner universities - the Mykolas Romeris University (Lithuania),  Tallinn Technical University (Estonia) and Turku University (Finland).

The project is implemented with the financial support of the Nordplus program. Project Number: NPHE-2018/10311.
