The first, the P.R.I.M.E. Finance Dispute Center, was launched in January 2012 as a project for assisting judicial systems in the settlement of disputes on complex financial transactions. It has since become the P.R.I.M.E. Finance Foundation.
The second instrument, ACCESS facility , was developed with a view to support greater access to non-judicial remedies by supporting human rights compatible, interest-based problem solving to prevent and resolve company-community conflicts.
A third initiative, on the civil law aspects of international corruption , is being developed to provide a cost-efficient, swift and simple alternative for resolving civil corruption disputes. WLF aspires to create a panel of corruption experts qualified to mediate and settle corruption related claims and disputes world-wide.
"The next generation of international lawmakers will be private parties."
