Elvira Bacci

Country of Residence: Italy

Primary Language: Italian

Other Languages: English, German

Field of Mediation: International

Professional Background

In 2019 I attended a two-week program on ADR in Berlin, deemed to satisfy the basic mediation training requirements for court appointment as a mediator pursuant to many American states' statutory and court rule standards. Since 2020 I collaborate with ADRpoint one of the largest private mediation centers in Europe registered in the ODR platform of the European Commission. Since 2020 I am a volunteer for International Academy of Dispute Resolution. In 2021 while being a Trainee Lawyer, I qualified as mediator under current italian legislation. Thanks to all the above I gained experience with different types of mediation: ODR and consumers’ rights, family mediation when minors are involved, intercultural mediation and migrants’ rights, international transactions and commercial disputes.

Biography Letter

Italian mediator, I enjoy using Italian, English and German to communicate with people from every walk of life. I have always fostered values of integrity, diversity, professionalism and worked to spread them around, while also raising awareness on the importance of people’s emotions.
I strive to create a community based on all the above-mentioned values and, as Mediation and the environment where I grew up have taught me, where the people are more empathetic towards one another.
I can help clients facing difficulties in communication; that need to overcome language barriers with other parties such as commercial partners, relatives, or the administrative system; in tense situation where legal breaches happened; when they seek rationality and calm.

Julius Kaut

Country of Residence: Netherlands

Primary Language: German

Other Languages: English

Field of Mediation: International

Professional Background

I come from a background of conflict studies and disaster management. In recent years, I have been working on food security in settings of intractable conflict and protracted crises. I hold a master’s degree in conflict management from the University of Haifa and I run a consultancy firm offering services for development and humanitarian actors. Further, I am currently researching at a Dutch University on the impact of humanitarian aid on conflict. Working in the humanitarian sector in an international environment and across borders and having lived in different countries within and outside of Europe, has shaped my understanding for intercultural conflict communication. These experiences have motivated me to absolve a master’s degree in conflict studies and to become a certified Mediator.

Biography Letter

Conflicts as a catalyst for change as well as the resolution, settlement and transformation of conflicts are what sparked my interest throughout my life.

I believe that in every-day conflicts and even in cases of intractable conflict and conflicts that have reached an impasse or mutually hurting stalemate, mediation and dialogue are the way forward to addressing conflicts on all scales. Only if all sides involved are granted the chances of being heard, of sharing their views and their respective narratives, finding an agreement becomes feasible.

Having lived and worked in areas that experience frequent conflict has further shaped my understanding of conflicts and I see mediation as the key component of any attempt for ‘partners in conflict’ to reach an agreement.

Being a European at heart and given my professional and personal background, I can best apply my knowledge and skills in cases of international, cross-border mediation.
