Peer-to-peer School Mediation

Despite efforts to reduce the violence, conflict, aggression in schools, an increased number of such cases continues to be recorded. The mediation of coevals, i.e. the education of same-age pupils to manage in-school conflicts, is a method applied systematically with impressive results in schools abroad.
