Mediation - North Meets South

MII President Karen Erwin and Accreditation Director Treasa Kenny travelled to Belfast in December 2008 to strengthen our ties with Mediators from Northern Ireland and to look at the accreditation of two training courses which will run there. The MII is developing an infrastructure to enable assessments of MII accredited Certified Mediators to take place locally.

One of our goals for 2009 is to encourage the use of mediation throughout the island of Ireland and to work with our members from Northern Ireland to achieve this. It is very important that the availability and quality of MII Mediators is marketed throughout the 32 counties and that we carry out our remit as the professional body of Mediators in both jurisdictions.
