The WMF is a non-profit organization. It recognizes the interdisciplinary nature of mediation.
Its mission is to develop and share knowledge, information and skills within and outside of all areas of mediation around the world. Its mission is also to build bridges between practice and academic circles.
The mission of the WMM is ensured in particular by the organization of an international conference that takes place every two years in a different country. Other means of fulfilling its mission are encouraged: dissemination of information through social networks, seminars, national conferences, training, courses, publications.
The three official languages of the WMF are English, Spanish and French.
