The third phase of EUROPEAN RESOURCES FOR MEDIATION SUPPORT (ERMES) is implemented by a consortium of leading specialized not for profit and international organisations and institutes: the European Centre for Electoral Support – ECES (Belgium), the European Forum for International Mediation and Dialogue – MediatEUr (Belgium), Fondation Hirondelle (Switzerland), Interpeace (Switzerland) and the Institute for Research and Education on Negotiation - ESSEC IRENE (France).. The consortium is led by the College of Europe (Belgium).


The programme is funded and managed by the European Commission’s Service for Foreign Policy Instruments (FPI). FPI closely cooperates with the European External Action Service (EEAS) and EU Delegations to ensure the political appropriateness of actions undertaken under ERMES.
