African Mediation Initiative
Our African Mediation Initiate (AMI) is a fundamental part of our vision and a project to which we are fully dedicated. We want to revolutionise conflict/dispute management on the continent by working with all sectors of society, from local communities to the legal and business sectors, and in the process, help to improve access/administration of justice. We have already made a significant move by forming a strong alliance with London ADR Nigeria. Our aim is to firmly establish our presence throughout the continent, from the Northern and Southern African states to the ECOWAS and EAC regions.
London ADR is focused on the development of efficient court-based mediation schemes across Africa or the improvement upon existing ones, which will help eliminate or reduce the enormous pressure laid upon the courts by a soaring backlog of cases. We aim to implement sustainable mediation framework that will ensure the effective referral and management of cases through the courts and other agencies, and define the parameters in which mediators can continue to maintain their competence.
AMI is a strategically important project that involves educating various sectors of society and the general public by holding conferences and open/in-house seminars. It also involves delivering quality mediation training to members of the judiciary, legal professionals, organisations, law students and interested individuals, which leads to accreditation as a mediator.
As we introduce mediation across Africa, we are committed to establishing mediation as a profession of integrity and significant relevance in the 21st century. We believe that to have a truly sustainable mediation framework, the professional development and adherence to best practices by mediators is of utmost importance.
London ADR can also deliver a sophisticated ADR service to private and public sector organisations in Africa, to facilitate rapid and commercially viable resolutions in a wide range of commercial and workplace disputes or conflict situations.
