Why ADR development? And why MCN?

The primary goal of ADR Development is to help improve any nations’ or organizations’ confidence and competence in Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) processes – what we call as Appropriate Dispute Resolution.

Our further mission is to help increase national and international commerce, help reduce the frequency, cost and length of legal battles, and help countries to strengthen the rule of law by using ADR to relieve the debilitating pressure on their justice systems.

The ADR Development basic philosophy is that conflict can frequently be handled in a way that leads to mutual benefits, and can almost always be handled in ways that will reduce costs.

MCN’s larger goals include:

  • enhancing dialogue
  • helping businesses manage their conflicts more effectively
  • building and rebuilding commercial relationships
  • improving access to justice, and
  • increasing the effectiveness of legal aid system, through implementation of good ADR policy.


Through dispute systems design, training, conferences, and a variety of other activities, we develop resources, and capacity to bring efficient new world approaches that endure an overloaded and inefficient judicial sector, with major consequent effects on the communities and the commercial sector.
