What is Mediation
Mediation as a dispute resolution method means in the simplest of words; an assisted negotiation.
Mediation is a process in which a competent mediator enhances communication levels and facilitates negotiation between parties allowing them to better understand the different dimensions of their dispute and each other’s perspectives consequently allowing the parties to reach an informed voluntary decision regarding their dispute.
Mediation allows the parties to keep their dispute private, sustain control over the outcome, maintain good relations and future collaborations and create creative mutually accepted solutions regarding their dispute in a flexible, less time intensive, less costly private manner when compared to adjudication.
