Location

Situation

The high level of violence amongst migrants and local communities which reflects a complicated combination of the migrant’s past history and recent stresses -- on -- individuals, and community level. These migrants especially those from war torn countries do have the basic conflicts management skills. Hence, they see violence as the only means to settle disputes rather “mediation”.

Solution

By providing alternative methods (Restorative Justice - mediation) of dealing with crime, wrongdoing and conflicts to Migrants and local communities and by assisting migrants to deal with conflicts through mediation. We would also assist migrants to gain an understanding of the Criminal Justice Process and empower them to adopt Restorative Justice/Mediation as an approach in settling disputes and equip community members with the basic conflict management skills (Mediation).
