By BBN Staff: Improved Access to Justice in the Caribbean (IMPACT Justice), a program funded by the Canadian government, will train 36 Belizean police officers in mediation.

IMPACT Justice is a five year regional justice sector reform project implemented from within the Caribbean Law institute Centre, UWI, Cave Hill Campus.

The workshop on mediation is a 40-hour course taking place from November 28 to December 2 in Belize City. An opening session was held today with remarks from the Commissioner of Police Allen Whylie.

The introduction was given by Professor Velma Newton, regional project director of IMPACT Justice.

The goal is to build capacity for and increase the use of  Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) as a means of settling conflict throughout the region.

The project was commenced in April 2014 and has facilitated training in Barbados, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Trained persons from IMPACT Justice will then be assisted to develop systems for putting the techniques learned into practice.
