The International Committee for Settlement of non-Governmental Disputes (ICSNGD), with its long history and experience in the field of alternative dispute resolution, provides services to individuals and organizations who wish to resolve conflicts out of court.
The ICSNGD role in the dispute resolution process is to administer cases, from filing to closing. The ICSNGD provides administrative services in the U.S., as well as abroad. The ICSNGD's administrative services include assisting in the appointment of mediators and arbitrators, setting hearings, and providing users with information on dispute resolution options, including settlement through mediation. Ultimately, the ICSNGD aims to move cases through arbitration or mediation in a fair and impartial manner until completion.
Additional ICSNGD services include the design and development of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) systems for corporations, unions, government agencies, law firms, and the courts. The Association also provides elections services as well as education, training, and publications for those seeking a broader or deeper understanding of alternative dispute resolution.
