Trainings

Trainings are offered for agencies or entities working within this field, either because they are in charge of solving such conflicts impartially, like the courts, or because they are stakeholders, like the Public Ministry or Public Defenders (who can also assume the role of mediators sometimes), Executive agencies (federal, state or local), Legislative, Public Attorney’s Office, the not for profit entities or large corporations.

 

Examples of past trainings:


Research and Consulting services

SIS provides research services that focus on identifying conflicts with potential for consensual resolution, evaluating the efficacy of cases where the consensual resolution was adopted, comparing the outcomes (in terms of time, cost and addressing the legitimate interests of parties) in conflicts solved in the traditional (contentious) or consensual way, or by different approaches agreed with the contracting parties; in terms of consultancy, SIS advises public entities, non-profit organisations or mediation entities who intend to implement mediation programmes (or other forms of consensual resolution) for public policies conflicts resolution, in the construction of parameters for gauging and measuring the effectiveness and the quality of such programmes, of the certified mediators, of the dissemination and selection strategies for cases and mediators, among other requirements defined case by case.

Mediation services

SIS operates independently or in partnership with mediators certified by the agencies in charge of conflict resolution, in concrete conflicts which involve social or environmental controversies, as well as other public or economic policies. This activity is divided into:

  1. Conflict diagnosis and stakeholder mapping;
  2. Conflict mediation aiming to reach consensual solutions, respecting the applicable ethical guidelines;
  3. Monitoring of agreement implementation;
  4. Dialogue facilitation for negotiated rulemaking, including but not limited to the assistance for public consultations and hearings;
  5. Specialised supervision (or coaching) of mediation in public policies conflicts, either judicial or extrajudicial;
  6. Specialised supervision (or coaching) of negotiation in public policies conflicts, whether they are judicialised or not, helping, for example, Public Ministry (civil investigations), Public Administration (administrative process), Public Defender’s Office or other stakeholders.
