Proyecto ABA/USAID de Mediación en México, www.mediacionenmexico.org
This initiative has been able to work
as a catalyst in the implementation of court-annexed mediation
services all over Mexico. There are now 19 court annexed
mediation centers in the different states in Mexico serving
communities and giving more access to expedite justice in conflicts
in which the traditional legal path can be avoided by providing an
arena for a possible win/win situation. The project has provided
technical assitance, basic mediation training, train
the trainer courses, design, management and operation of mediation
center workshops, workshops on legislation (in mediation), etc.
Five states in Mexico have their own Mediation Law already
operating, some others have reformed their constutition and "Ley
organica del Poder Judicial", others have opted for a reform in
their Civil Codes and some others are operating through an agreement
of the State Tribunal's plenium.
