The Indian Institute of Arbitration and Mediation, with the Chief Justice of India, have recently launched the IIAM Community Mediation Service. This initiative aims to bring justice to the people in India and to contribute to the harmony of their communities by providing neutral and safe dispute resolution opportunities.
The service will use local mediators to help individuals to work collaboratively in finding solutions to conflict, rather than resorting to adversarial processes, and to prevent community tensions from escalating into violence. Community Mediation Clinics are to be set up in all districts of each state and the service will also be offered to Indian communities abroad. The first five clinics will be established on 12th October 2012, following a community mediator orientation program.
