Working with an existing network of mediators and in partnership with regional centers for mediation and conflict resolution, the institute provides a forum for understanding the value added by mediating disputes. The process of mediation can also be an opportunity develop models which can be applied in other conflicts. IEDS is committed to using modern analytical tools such as Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and simulation software to inform the mediation process and thereby achieve more sustainable outcomes.
We also offer mediation services on a non-profit basis under the University of Vermont's 501-C3 status. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions regarding mediation services.
