Interfaith Mediation Centre (IMC) is a non -governmental, non-partisan, not for profit making, faith based organization dedicated to promoting peace and good governance through capacity building, conflict resolution and mediation etc. using faith based approach. IMC provides tools and resources that support effective and responsive government including consulting, facilitation, mediation and training. IMC help public entities, including state agencies, development partners with integrated conflict management systems, in order to improve their ability to deal with conflict.
IMC, established in 1995, has worked with more than 50 communities in Kaduna, Plateau, Kano and Bauchi and reached over 4 million people directly with conflict and peace prevention programmes. IMC uses multimedia mediums like radio/TV broadcasts, documentary films of the Kaduna crisis (entitled the Imam and a Pastor) shown as entry points to show religious harmony, peaceful coexistence and reconciliation. This approach has saved the purpose of providing open-democratic spaces for aggrieved parties to share their grievances openly and honestly and proffer local solutions to issues without having solutions imposed on them from ‘outsiders’. The recognition of IMC’s approach had earned invitation to University of Birmingham, Maryland University etc. and other international conference on interfaith dialogue in Cairo-Egypt, Berlin-Germany, United Kingdom, USA, Switzerland, Lebanon, Kenya, Chad, Senegal, Canada, France, Malaysia, Singapore, Iraq, Israel, Germany, Scotland, Norway, Finland, Australia, Sudan, South Sudan etc. to share lessons on the success of IMC approach.
