What is Mediation? What is Arbitration?
Part of the mission of our organization is to inform and educate the public about conflict resolution and the role that it can play in our society and the world. Our website will serve to help us in this mission by providing information about the field and the different elements that constitute the practice of conflict resolution.
The practice of conflict resolution can take different forms. Conflict resolution encompasses mediation, arbitration, conflict coaching, facilitation, reconciliation, negotiation, diplomacy, and peace-building.
