Purpose: The increase in judicial conflicts caused by the pandemic has once again revealed the limitations of the judicial process to resolve some of the issues related to access to housing and relations between neighbors. The health and social crisis have accentuated the perception that we coexist, but our coexistence lacks a sense of community, which shows that we need housing policies that provide conflict resolution mechanisms that promote dialogue and collaboration. For these reasons, the UNESCO Housing Chair of Rovira i Virgili University, in collaboration with the Postgraduate Course in Mediation and Conflict Resolution of the FURV, has brought together national and international experts to analyze the benefits of applied mediation as a public policy tool in the management of the urban.
