Dispute Resolution Foundation

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:

  • 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
  • To establish Peace and Justice Centres (service centres) in communities throughout Jamaica
  • To increase the mediation and arbitration services by the legal profession and courts as dispute resolution options

There are 4 Divisions providing services nationally and regionally:

  • Court, Corporate and Commercial Mediation & Arbitration Services
  • Knowledge Management
  • Outreach, Youth and Community Services
  • Governance and Administration
