In an increasingly intersected world, the use and accessibility of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) has experienced significant growth in the last 30 years. Dealing with the challenges of today requires problem-solvers who bring different perspectives and are willing to utilise a mixture of subject matter expertise, professional experience and interpersonal skills.
The Caribbean ADR Initiative emerged out of a pursuit to support both the existing practitioners and experts in the Caribbean region, and to inspire others to use and promote these ADR mechanisms for greater access to viable and lasting outcomes where disputes occur.
Established in 2020 by co-founders Baria Ahmed and Shan M Greer, CADRIn is driven by progressive ideas, bold actions, and a strong foundation of support. Contact us to learn more and get involved.
