This chapter argues for rethinking and reassessing our understanding of how mediation is related conceptually and practically to constitution making. In many cases of armed intra state conflict or social unrest calling for democratic transition, the core issues are of deep constitutional relevance, speaking to the political transformation of the state. To address the constitutional issues in such conflict contexts, peace or transition processes often combine peace making and constitution making. Despite this clear connection in practice, scholarship on the relationship between mediation and constitution making is largely absent. The chapter proposes new ways of thinking about how a mutual relationship may be forged to better contribute to the transformation of conflict for sustaining peace.
