For Release Upon Receipt - Thursday, November 3, 2016

The Canadian Government-funded, Improved Access to Justice in the Caribbean (IMPACT Justice) Project is returning to Guyana for its second round of community mediation training, after having successfully completed a set of two training sessions earlier in October. IMPACT Justice is a five-year regional justice sector reform project which is being implemented from within the Caribbean Law Institute Centre, UWI, Cave Hill Campus.

As with the first set of training, two 40-hour workshops are scheduled to take place simultaneously from October 31st to November 4th: one for officers of the Ministry of Social Protection at the Pegasus Hotel and the other for police officers at the Guyana Marriott Hotel Hotel. This training falls under the project’s broader ADR component, the goal of which is to build capacity for community mediation services in the region.
