MISSION: To expand use of alternative methods for the resolution of conflict and support the development and enhancement of processes founded upon: 
  • integrity
  • respect and empowerment of the participants
  • acceptance of responsibility
  • consideration of the impact of the resolution on the disputants and their community, and appreciation of diversity.
