Our Mission


FICA’s mission is to be a leading international “think-tank” for the development, enhancement, and encouragement of creative and resourceful means and methods for the resolution of trans-national disputes. FICA emphasizes the word “alternative” in Alternative Dispute Resolution. In addition to being a forum for the exchange and development of ideas and procedures relating to the resolution and conciliation of disputes, FICA’s members are highly qualified arbitrators, mediators, experts, early-neutral evaluators, and expert determiners across a wide range of countries and subject areas. Many of FICA's members are available to assist parties to a dispute to reach a just, fair, and cost-effective resolution.
