Herbert C. Kelman, the Emeritus Richard Clarke Cabot Professor of Social Ethics, was awarded the 2009 Socrates Prize for Mediation by the Centrale für Mediation. A multidisciplinary mediation association focused on the promotion of mediation and dispute resolution in society, Centrale für Mediation recognized Kelman for his outstanding contributions to the solution of national and international conflicts at the 13th Annual Mediation Congress in Berlin. Kelman has been engaged for more than 30 years in efforts toward the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and is a pioneer in the development of interactive problem solving, an unofficial third-party approach to the resolution of international and intercommunal conflicts.
