This description of Tarek Ramadan's work was prepared when Tarek Ramadan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2008.
Introduction
Tarek Ramadan is deploying local “natural leaders” in rural communities and urban “squatter” neighborhoods to deliver immediate, binding mediation, thus resolving family and community disputes at their earliest stages, mitigating grievances that increasingly lead to violence. In addition, he offers participatory training in conflict resolution, regulation strategies, and management skills for drafting, recording, and enforcing reconciliation agreements.
