Abstract:     
Sharia court-annexed mediation was first implemented in the Indonesian judiciary system in 2008. The majority of mediators in Sharia courts are male judges who are obligated by civil procedure law to initially settle disputes amicably prior to the litigation process. The authors argue that court-annexed mediation has the potential to be the champion of Indonesian legal reform as it has similar characteristics to musyawarah, the indigenous way of resolving conflicts. However, given the prevalence of violence against women in disputes arising from separation and divorce, mediators must have appropriate awareness, knowledge, skills, and techniques to identify, understand, and handle these cases.
