Mediation is a proceeding of conflict settlement which can be applied in many areas of life. Mediation goes back to a Latin as well as to a Greek source. It means “intermediary”, “neutral”, “oriented to none of the parties”. The process of mediation aims at conciliating in conflicts or disputes with the help of an impartial third person, the mediator.
Mediators support the conflict parties in searching their own solutions which take the interests of all persons involved into account, so that they are fair. Mediation is a good option when conflict parties are stuck in their situations and do not see any possibilities to develop a mutual solution by themselves.
Mediation is multipartial: Mediators support all parties and provide for a setting in which the conflict parties are able to present their view on the problem in an appropriate way. It is the aim of the mediation to achieve an agreement which enables all parties to look into the future constructively.
Mediation is an extrajudicial proceeding of conflict resolution. It therefore saves time and money.
