LMM(86)10 A Pilot Community Mediation Service

The Christchurch Service was established as a two year pilot project with the aim of testing the validity, within New Zealand, of community mediation as a way to settle disputes between persons with ongoing contact with one another. The kinds of disputes envisaged were, for example, between neighbours, family members or persons who worked together in either a voluntary or paid capacity. It was considered that the formal legal system, with an inevitable w in or lose outcome, was not always the appropriate vehicle for this kind of conflict there being no facility to deal with future relationships or a compromise settlement.
