CSSP – Berlin Center for Integrative Mediation is a registered NGO in Germany. The organisation is headquartered in Berlin, with local offices in Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Albania. The organisation was founded in 2005 as a “Lessons Learned” project, which drew lessons from Prof. Dr. Christian Schwarz-Schilling’s work as the International Mediator in Bosnia and Herzegovina (1995 – 2004). Integrative Mediation originated as a methodology from his advisory team. The approach has evolved over the years and is further developed by members of the CSSP Team.
CSSP worked and works primarily in the post-war Balkan region (Kosovo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, North Macedonia, Serbiaand Albania), even if since 2010, CSSP’s outreach expanded to transitional societies beyond this region.
