Sharon Burde, "a mediator for over two decades, believes that a multi-cultural society with equal access to power and equal assumption of responsibility is the only way to achieve true democracy.

"Sharon Burde teaches graduate students at NYU and is a member of the Steering Committee of the CUNY Dispute Resolution Consortium. In former Yugoslavia she has worked with women of all ethnic origins to create new multiethnic programs and models. She furthermore worked with Neve Shalom/ Wahat al-Salam for ten years - with Palestinians and Israelis in support of models that promote peace and justice. Neve Shalom/ Wahat al-Salam means "Oasis of Peace" in Hebrew and Arabic. It is a village, where an equal number of Jewish and Palestinian families live, work and educate their children in a community of peaceful co-existence and equality. Sharon is particularly interested in the Wahat al-Salam dimensions of deeply rooted conflict." [1]
