Charles Crawford has had many years of diplomatic experience in dealing with and negotiating over - at a high level and in strict confidence - a wide range of difficult and sensitive problems, often in challenging circumstances: South Africa as the apartheid period ended, post-communist Russia, post-conflict Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Serbia/Montenegro/Kosovo after the fall of Milosevic.
More recently as HM Ambassador in Warsaw he led the British diplomatic effort in Poland as Poland joined the European Union in 2004 and then played a significant role in British negotiations with Poland on the EU Budget and the EU 'Constitutional Treaty'.
On leaving the Foreign Office and the diplomatic world he decided to turn this unique expertise to a new use, qualifying in late 2007 as a professional Mediator with both the ADR Group (http://www.adrgroup.co.uk/) and the Regent’s College School of Psychotherapy and Counselling Psychology (http://www.spc.ac.uk/) in London. In 2008 he qualified as a Mediator with the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (http://www.cedr.co.uk/).
He is now a member of the Panel of ADR Net Mediators as well as an SPCP Accredited Mediator. In 2010 he became a founding partner of ADRg Ambassadors, the world’s first panel of former senior diplomats who are all qualified as mediators: www.adrgambassadors.com
