The objective that led to the foundation of the Institute for Professionalization of Mediation and Conflict Management is to place mediation and conflict management on a broader scientific basis.
This is to be achieved through interdisciplinary cooperation with internationally recognized universities and research institutions. Currently IPMK cooperates with the Danube University in Krems, the Sigmund Freud University in Vienna and the New York University Institute of Law as well as the Center of Creative Conflict Resolution in New York. Further partnerships are under development.
As a result of these efforts, we would like to point out a Certification Program at the Danube University in Krems, which will start this October - see study program of the Department of Law and International Relations page 16/17.
The association was founded in January 2021 - the website is currently under construction.
