About MII

The Mediators’ Institute of Ireland (the MII) was established to promote the use of quality mediation as a process of dispute resolution in all areas by ensuring the highest standards of education, training and professional practice of mediation and by increasing public awareness of mediation

The MII has different categories of membership which include accredited Mediators, trainee Mediators, and individuals and organisations which have an interest in mediation.
