National Authority for Alternative Dispute Resolution (NADR) Elevates Out-of-Court Resolution Efforts

Phnom Penh: In a bid to bolster out-of-court dispute resolution mechanisms, the National Authority for Alternative Dispute Resolution (NADR) has unveiled strategic plans, signaling a significant stride towards enhancing their effectiveness. Led by Deputy Prime Minister Mr. Keut Rith, also serving as Minister of Justice and Chairman of the NADR, the fourth meeting of the authority convened in Phnom Penh on a recent Thursday afternoon in March 2024.

The pivotal meeting focused on reviewing and discussing two crucial documents integral to the mediation process. Firstly, the draft decision on mediation procedures within the framework of the National Authority for Dispute Resolution outside the judiciary underwent thorough scrutiny. Secondly, discussions centered on the structure and content of dispute resolution agreement minutes, along with strategies for their implementation within the framework of the NADR.

Furthermore, the gathering dedicated significant time to deliberating collaborative efforts with relevant ministries and institutions. Plans are underway to formalize memoranda of understanding (MOUs) between the NADR and key stakeholders such as the Ministry of Interior, the Ministry of Inspection, the Bar Association of the Kingdom of Cambodia, sub-national administrations, and other pertinent bodies. These partnerships are poised to play a pivotal role in augmenting the effectiveness of out-of-court dispute resolution mechanisms in the near future.

Emphasizing the significance of cross-sector collaboration in advancing dispute resolution goals, the meeting highlighted the importance of forging robust partnerships. As preparations for MOUs progress, the NADR aims to establish collaborative ties that not only strengthen the resolution process but also uphold principles of justice and fairness.

In conclusion, the NADR's proactive approach towards enhancing out-of-court dispute resolution mechanisms signals a landmark step towards fostering a more cohesive and efficient legal landscape. By fostering collaboration and refining procedural frameworks, the NADR remains steadfast in its commitment to delivering justice and promoting harmonious dispute resolution practices.
