The Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Karachi through its Center for Executive Education (CEE) launched the IBA Dispute Resolution Forum (IBA-DRF), to promote mediation as an appropriate means of resolving disputes, particularly in the civil/commercial space. The IBA-DRF is inspired by the Harvard Negotiation Project, a project of Harvard University on the issues of negotiation and conflict resolution.
The IBA-DRF is spearheaded by the ADR Team at IBA comprising of the following individuals; Navin Merchant (Convenor), Nausheen Ahmad, Altaf Qureshi, Sohaib Saleem (Focal Person).
The IBA-DRF seeks to implement court based or non-court-based practices of dispute resolution and negotiation, by working on real world disputes, improving conflict intervention methods, providing education and training, and writing and disseminating conflict resolution techniques and practices.
Mediation is a process conducted by a neutral person who assists the parties in working towards a negotiated agreement of a dispute or difference, with the parties in ultimate control of the decision to settle the terms of resolution. More and more disputes are now being resolved through mediation globally. It is particularly effective in Asia as the process of mediation is inspired by Asian values of community, family, harmony, and collectivism.
There are numerous advantages of choosing mediation over arbitration or litigation such as:
IBA Dispute Resolution Forum's Panel of Mediators includes experienced accredited mediators with various professional backgrounds, which allows the parties a wide range of options for the selection of their mediators or neutrals according to the nature of the dispute. IBA-DRF also requires its mediators to demonstrate a commitment to continued professional growth in the underlying principles and competence in mediation skills.
With a staff of experienced international lawyers, the IBA-DRF not only handles the settlement of disputes but also provides support in contact drafting. A properly drafted dispute resolution clause will help ensure that your interests are protected when a dispute arises. We provide a variety of model clauses exactly for this purpose. Parties, themselves can also draft their own clauses to suit their specific needs.
