Raising Public Awareness about Mediation in Gori

The Mediators Association of Georgia (MAG), with the USAID Rule of Law Program support, organized an informative meeting in Gori.

At the event, Tamar Imnaishvili, the Executive Director of MAG, and Irakli Gelovani, the ADR Advisor from the USAID Rule of Law Program, disseminated information about mediation and its advantages to representatives of local civil society organizations, the private sector, academia, and local government.

Twenty-three local actors and potential mediation users received the presenters’ viewpoints on various aspects of mediation. These included an overview of mediation, its benefits, the types of disputes suitable for mediation, the associated costs, fundamental mediation principles and procedures, and the difference between court-annexed and private mediation. Attendees also learned how to engage a mediator.

The presenters shared concrete examples of successfully mediated cases and best practices. The audience members expressed their appreciation for this method of dispute resolution and showed particular interest in pursuing careers as mediators, understanding the typical duration of mediation procedures, the distinctions between court-mediated and private mediation, and other mediation-related matters. The next such meeting is scheduled for November 17, 2023, in Batumi.
