Mediation Week 2023 – ICYMI – Conflicts and Ethics: The Role of Ethics in Conflict Resolution-Day 5

202324 minutesEnglish

Ethics are central to dispute prevention, dispute resolution, and compliance. If murids act ethically, in pursuit of the common good, they will contribute to an ethos of fairness and minimization of conflicts. Further, if murids are open to moral encouragement, they will be more amenable to settling disputes amicably and ethically. Once a dispute is settled, there is a moral commitment needed to comply with its terms. On Day 5 of Mediation Week, we revisit the role of ethics in disputes and how the Ismaili Conciliation and Arbitration Boards help the Jamat resolve disputes by providing an ethical culture of mediation.
