About Process North is maintained by Mike Waite, who works as an independent mediator, facilitator, trainer, researcher and consultant. Mike’s specialisms are in community cohesion; social integration; & in helping to address social divisions issues through civic mediation.

The website carries short articles & book reviews which it’s hoped will be of interest to mediators & others working on conflicts and disputed questions; professionals responsible for holding dialogue, debates & discussions on ‘difficult’ & ‘controversial’ subjects; researchers looking at contested issues & social distances; and leaders & activists at all levels in communities, politics, business, local government & the voluntary sector.
