The 7th Annual Peace Congress organized by Mediators Beyond Borders International (MBB) took place in Bucharest between April 23 and 25, 2015, bringing together over 200 worldwide recognized regional and global conflict transformation practitioners from 40 countries, to share and debate mediation techniques and procedures focused on peace building in the 21st century.

 

Prabha Sankaranarayan, CEO and President MBB, Project Team Leader for Liberia and Board Liaison for Kenya; Shadia Marhaban, the only woman negotiator in the 2005 Helsinki peace talks; Mary Montague, involved in global peace building work from 1975, including throughout the many years of conflict in Northern Ireland; and Desmond Tutu, the Nobel Peace Prize laureate in 1984 (via video address), were only some of the international conflict transformation professionals who carried on ‘Dangerous Dialogues and Courageous Conversations’ during the MBB Peace Congress.

 

The Congress opening remarks were given by Mr. Daniel Ionita, Secretary of State for Strategic Affairs for the Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, while the first day of panels and workshops started with an welcoming address delivered by Mr. Liviu Stancu, Secretary of State for the Ministry of Justice.
