About Us

Inter Mediate is a registered charity for negotiation and mediation.

It was established by Jonathan Powell, Tony Blair’s former chief of staff and the chief British negotiator on Northern Ireland from 1997-2007, and Martin Griffiths, founder and former director of the Centre for Humanitarian Dialogue in Geneva.

Inter Mediate focuses on the most difficult, complex and dangerous conflicts where other organisations are unable to operate.

It brings together some of the world’s leading experts on dialogue and negotiation, who operate as a small and flexible team that fills a vital gap in the conflict resolution landscape. Through the facilitation of negotiation, Inter Mediate hopes to contribute towards a sustainable end to conflict.
