Is Mr. A-Nawaz address disputes within the Ismaili group or across other faiths?
We handle disputes within the community and also with other faiths, as long as one party is a member of our faith. So for example, where one member of a couple is an Ismaili Muslim and the other member is a member of a different faith, we help with those disputes.
what about finding universal values that cross religious lines
finding commonalities asa common meeting space as a ground for conflict healing
Powerful observation Esther. Birth order, social hierarchy can have an important impact on family disputes.
Thanks to Mr. Nanji for giving us insight into the Ismaili organizations and the kinds of services they provide. Just curious, are all the volunteer mediators from the same community?
Yes our mediators are from the same faith community, but have diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds.
Thanks Mr. Nanaji.
Peter, your opening remarks were impressive and informative; many thanks. Did I hear it right that your organization could use more faith-based mediators? A clarification will oblige.

Yes, community mediation services are always looking for new volunteer mediators to keep our rosters current. Having said that, we get ten applicants for each spot that comes open! And you have to live in our catchment. Check out the Ontario Community Mediation Coalition.
I love the analogy of "How do you live in your religion, skin or clothes?"
Thanks a lot Peter.
Well said Mr. Nanji
great response on re
Thank you for the presentations. Excellent.
My Q is for anyone: Why cannot be solved the jewish-palestine conflict?
you have spoken about mediation during this presentation. I am an arbitrator, not a mediator. How can this discussion be applied to arbitration?
Merci beaucoup everyone!
Re: Isreal-Palestine conflict - the 1970s Egypt-Isreal peace accords were derived through a lengthy Camp David mediation process with President Carter. Despite the two countries having been at war repeatedly before, they have achieved a durable peace that has now been maintained for almost 50 years. But mediation requires that the parties have to WANT to resolve the conflict.
This has been one of the most interesting and educating programs. My compliments to all the panelists for their wonderful presentations. Linda's suggestion about the benefits of co-mediations is most appreciated. Thanks.
It was great to see Esther's knowledge encompassing so many faiths. Great job Esther.
thank you for a nice presentation!
