Tutu Foundation UK: Sharing Mediation Skills


FOUNDATION UK TUTU 2 “


The Tutu Legacy and the Tutu Foundation UK


Archbishop Desmond and Leah Tutu wish to see their lifelong commitment to peace and reconciliation shared around the world. They hope to build peace in communities divided by violence and antisocial behaviour


by helping people understand that we all have more in common than divides us. The TUTU Foundation UK aims to build peace in fractured communities in the UK by building on Archbishop Desmond Tutu’s peace and reconciliation work all over the world.


We all have more in common than divides us


The overarching principles of the foundation are inclusion, openness and empowerment embodied in


the South


African concept of “Ubuntu” that emphasises our common humanity; our connectedness and interdependence as fellow human beings.


The mediation skills course


In 2011 the Tutu Foundation UK began a partnership with Regent’s University London to develop and deliver a mediation course. The mediation course teaches participants new skills to recognise and negotiate anger, conflict and difference.


The course is underpinned by the concepts of Ubuntu and Existential Philosophy that share an emphasis on our common humanity and how our “relatedness” creates the strategies we use to negotiate within and between our communities. The principles of both Ubuntu and Existentialism encourage us to look beyond ourselves and to become more fully human.

The Mediation training teaches participants: How to transform anger and conflict into positive change The benefits of respecting and valuing the views of others The importance of mutual respect, understanding


appreciation of diversity


How to respond positively and constructively to the challenges of conflict How to build bridges across and between existing communities How to open dialogue with new communities as they emerge


What the course has achieved


The collaboration between Regent’s University London (RUL) and the Tutu Foundation UK (TFUK) has been a very effective means of promoting the work and legacy of the Archbishop. In the spring and autumn of 2012, 32 senior figures in the NHS and colleagues in the Tutu Foundation were trained and accredited as Mediators in the unique TFUK-RUL model of conflict resolution. This has spread Ubuntu facilitation and mediation practice amongst TFUK partners in health and social care, and has helped the Foundation to promote inclusion, equal opportunity and justice, as well as helping to build strong and fair communities.
