In 2017, a total of 8.76 million civil disputes were mediated by grassroots mediation organizations in China, according to the Ministy of Justice.

These mediations had a 98 percent resolution rate, Minister of Justice Zhang Jun  said at a two-day justice meeting which concluded on Jan 25.

Zhang urged justice departments and people's courts to provide better training of mediators to cope with the rising number of cases.

Mediation is a way of resolving disputes at the community level without recourse to litigation.
