IBA - Dispute Resolution Forum

DRF Heritage

The Institute of Business Administration (IBA) Karachi through its Center for Executive Education (CEE) launched the IBA Dispute Resolution Forum (IBA-DRF), to promote mediation as an appropriate means of resolving disputes, particularly in the civil/commercial space. The IBA-DRF is inspired by the Harvard Negotiation Project, a project of Harvard University on the issues of negotiation and conflict resolution.

The IBA-DRF is spearheaded by the ADR Team at IBA comprising of the following individuals; Navin Merchant, Nausheen Ahmad, Altaf Qureshi, Sohaib Saleem.

The IBA-DRF seeks to implement court based or non-court-based practices of dispute resolution and negotiation, by working on real world disputes, improving conflict intervention methods, providing education and training, and writing and disseminating conflict resolution techniques and practices.
