The Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution undertakes foundation projects and activities, looking at innovation and research in the area of conflict, as part of its not-for-profit work. The foundation actvities complement CEDR’s Services arm and seeks to bring about public benefit by impacting four main areas: civil justice reform and ADR Initiatives; excellence and innovation in effective conflict management; effective dialogue in organisational leadership and governance; and society and conflict management.

Working in the UK and internationally, CEDR’s work is supported by businesses, law firms and public sector organisations, informing the advancement of dispute resolution and conflict management within these sectors as well as civil justice systems.
