DEI als democratiseringsproces waarbij rechten hersteld worden – Latifa Matheeussen

With her article, Leen aims to highlight “mediation in employment context”. Indeed, expert mediation can play both a curative and a preventive role, giving the employer the opportunity to work on the “conflict resilience” and “conflict skills” of employees and the company as a whole.
