CEDR is an independent non-profit organisation and a registered charity with a vision that better conflicts result in better outcomes leading to a better world. Our mission to provide society with skills and solutions for effective dialogue and to bring about sustainable change.
All our work is underpinned by our values of Humanity, Independence, Tenacity and Transformation.
Formed in 1989, CEDR were the original disruptors before disruptors had their name, being the leading campaigner for the development of alternative methods of resolving disputes both in the UK and internationally. We have been instrumental in assisting organisations and government departments to develop their own conflict management and dispute resolution strategies, and have lobbied vigorously to raise the awareness of mediation and related skills training. We continue to honour that legacy, charting our own path as the modern face of mediation and conflict resolution.
CEDR regularly partners with national and multi-national organisations to develop a better understanding of the value of communication and collaboration skills in and out of the workplace, as well as dispute resolution capabilities. We inspire people to look differently at conflict, reframing it as an opportunity to achieve better outcomes and build a better society. We approach people as people and demonstrate this in everything we do.
Our partners are private and public: Government bodies, international development agencies, consumer associations, law societies, bar associations, chambers of commerce and many others, examples include:
