Community Mediation in Nepal
October 26, 2011
In this new video, Nepal Country Representative George Varughese describes The Asia Foundation’s approach to community mediation in Nepal, and includes footage of mediators and disputants engaged in an actual mediation session. Nepal’s citizens face both a weak and inaccessible formal justice system and inadequate means of resolving local disputes. Mediation is able to fill this void in judicial assistance by providing immediate, affordable, and locally accessible dispute resolution services. Since 2001, The Asia Foundation has worked intensively to develop interest-based mediation and is currently a recognized leader in community mediation in Nepal. Mediation in Nepal offers a space to resolve interpersonal and collective disputes, which transforms adversarial tensions into relationships based on mutual respect.
