Community Mediation is a Win-Win Situation.
We are all different, but we are all the same. Communities are made of people/individuals having some characteristics in common but not everything. The introduction of every individual starts with “I am…….”. That is the point where the differences arise because every person has their own interpretation of events and their model of the world based on his/her own experience, observation or perception of the situation. These interpersonal differences most of the time, if not always, divide families, friends, communities and nations.
Community Mediation can be an excellent opportunity to resolving these differences and bridging the communities and their members. The Community Mediators can play a vital role in a wide range of disputes and differences, including:
- Differences within a family.
- Neighbours’ disputes.
- Problems and conflicts between different groups.
- Community issues.
Community Mediation is a voluntary, confidential, and flexible way of resolving disputes without going to court and spending a lot of money & time. Community Mediators follow a set procedure of communication and assist the disputing parties to reach a settlement that is acceptable to all parties; mediation is a Win-Win situation.
