About us


The Weinstein International Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to making mediation available and accessible worldwide in the face of increasing global challenges and conflict. Founded by deeply experienced dispute resolution pioneers in the U.S. and abroad, we leverage the growing network of ADR-trained Weinstein JAMS International Fellows to further promote mediation education and training while helping our communities manage local, regional and cross-border non-commercial disputes in the public interest.

Headquartered in San Francisco, the Weinstein International Foundation works through a global network of ADR-trained dispute resolution professionals from around the world with the cultural understanding and local knowledge necessary to promote the resolution of conflict through mediation and other dispute resolution practices in their own countries and beyond.


The Weinstein International Foundation is committed to:

  • Increasing access to justice by supporting the expansion and adoption of mediation and dispute resolution around the world
  • Providing education and training to promote mediation and other forms of dispute resolution internationally
  • Sponsoring select mediations to facilitate the resolution of conflicts of societal significance impacting  communities, regions and countries
  • Harnessing the collective knowledge and cultural understanding of the ever-expanding Weinstein JAMS International Fellows’ network through ongoing collaboration and exchange to advance the settlement of conflict worldwide
