After leaving Harvard University, Mark Gerzon co-founded both a global newspaper, and also the Mediators Foundation. The latter addresses critical social issues and fosters cross-cultural education as well as closer cooperation across international, ethnic and ideological divisions. Out of this came Global Mediators Associates (one client of which is the United States Congress); the South-North Development Initiative; Global Dialogue Partners and other initiatives. He is also a Distinguished Fellow of the EastWest Institute. His most recent book, Leading Through Conflict, has been translated into six languages, including Persian and Mandarin.
