Karachi Centre for Dispute Resolution (KCDR) started operations in Karachi, in February 2007. The Centre, first of its kind in Pakistan, follows international standard rules and code of ethics governing mediation proceedings.
The Karachi Centre for Dispute Resolution
is offering Mediation as an institutionalized alternative
dispute resolution (ADR) mechanism. This option is available
to the parties whose Commercial cases are either pending
before any court/ judicial forum, or who have not yet
filed a case in the Court.
KCDR has been established with the assistance and support of the High Court of Sindh and the International Finance Corporation/World Bank Group. It is registered as a Not-for-Profit Society under the Societies Registration Act of Pakistan (XXI of 1860).
