commentary description
This article offers information on the history, development and significance of the adoption and implementation of the alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques in Nicaragua and Rwanda. The ADR system addresses the issues of women and children suffering from domestic abuse and from the repercussions of the Rwandan Genocide and helps in rebuilding and restoring traditional values of family and community in the context of human rights.
