Our Mediation Services:
Community Groups Facilitation
The AMA is an international development consulting firm. Our conflict resolution practitioners have more than 20 years’ experience promoting sustainable development, good governance, peaceful conflict resolution, and the improvement of working conditions.
Increasingly, disputes faced by communities, local councils and non-government organisations are dealt with through alternative dispute resolution practices.
Community Groups Facilitation allows issues to be aired in a safe environment and for everyone’s concerns to be dealt with efficiently, effectively and at reasonable cost.
Experienced mediators and facilitators can provide enormous benefits to the community organisation, its members and the community at large.
The aim of this process is to produce a win/win outcome and the success rate is high.
Legal fees can be kept to a minimum or dispensed with altogether and emotional strain and disruption caused by unresolved issues are also diminished.
Violent and potentially violent conflict undermines development efforts. Terminating conflict in a way that does not address the roots of conflict may result in its re-emergence.
The AMA’s Community Groups Facilitation approach incorporates analysis of the deep sources of conflict and weighs the impact of state fragility on the selection, design, and implementation of appropriate interventions.
The AMA works in conflict situations ranging from peace building, conflict mitigation, and reconciliation to alternative dispute resolution, mediation, and facilitated dialogue.
The AMA’s highly accredited mediators and facilitators have years of experience in using the win/win philosophy to move parties from positions to interests by promoting a collaborative and non-adversarial approach.
They have successfully mediated and facilitated a broad range of multi-party disputes across Australia and overseas and are leaders in their field.
The AMA is the preferred service providers for dozens of small and large community, government and non-government organisations across all States and Territories in the areas of environmental, native title and work place, commercial and community disputes.
Our facilitators and mediators have the unique skills set, background and experience to effectively and successfully work with regional and remote communities throughout Australia.
