    The Dispute Resolution Foundation (DRF) is a private voluntary foundation established in July 1994 to establish and encourage the use of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) techniques throughout Jamaica. Some of its objectives are:

    1. To encourage and educate the public about using ADR techniques and community and restorative justice practices to promote peace and to resolve conflicts without resorting to violence;

    2. To establish Peace & Justice Centres (service points)  in communities throughout Jamaica;

    3. To increase the use of mediation and arbitration services by the legal profession and courts as dispute resolution options.

     

    There are 4 Divisions providing services nationally and regionally.  They are:

    1. Court, Corporate & Commercial Mediation & Arbitration Services

    2. Knowledge Management

    3. Outreach, Youth & Community Services

    4. Governance & Administration
