About the Asian Pacific Mediation Forum

The Asia-Pacific Mediation Forum (APMF) was formed in 2001. It is a not-for-profit regional association of individuals, organizations and institutions interested in promoting peace through mediation and other dispute resolution processes wherever conflicts threaten the well-being of individuals, organizations, communities and local, state or national governments in the region. The main objective of the APMF is to facilitate the exchange and development of knowledge, values and skills of mediation and other dispute resolution processes, in any form, including inter-cultural, interpersonal, inter-institutional and international, within and between the diverse countries and cultures in the Asia-Pacific region. To fulfil this objective, conferences are held in the region every two years, with a different country taking responsibility for hosting each conference. To date successful conferences have been held in Australia, Singapore, Fiji, Malaysia, Thailand, The Philippines and Indonesia. For more information about the APMF go to www.asiapacificmediationforum.org

BOOKS

Dale Bagshaw and Elisabeth Porter (eds), Mediation in the Asia-Pacific: transforming conflicts and building peace, Routledge, New York, 2009

This book examines mediation in connection with peacebuilding in the Asia-Pacific region, providing practical examples that either highlight the weaknesses within certain mediation approaches or demonstrate best-practice. The authors explore the extent to which current ideas and practices of mediation in the Asia-Pacific region are dominated by western understandings and critically challenge the appropriateness of such thinking. Featuring a range of case studies on Fiji, Vanuatu, Papua New Guinea, Malaysia, Vietnam, China, Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand, this book has three main aims:

·       to challenge dominant western practices and ways of thinking on mediation that currently are being imposed in the Asia-Pacific region;

·       to develop culturally fluent and socially just mediation alternatives that build upon local, traditional or religious approaches;

·       to situate mediation within ideas and practices on peacebuilding.

Making a unique contribution to peace and conflict studies literature by explicitly linking mediation and peacebuilding practices, this book is a vital text for students and scholars in these fields.
