Mediation is a form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR), a way of resolving disputes between two or more parties with concrete effects. Typically, a third party, the mediator, assists the parties to negotiate settlement. Disputants may mediate disputes in a variety of domains, such as commercial, legal, diplomatic, workplace, community and family matters. In mediation usually a third party helps others reach agreement. More specifically, mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that “ordinary” negotiation lacks. The process is private and confidential. Participation is typically voluntary. The organization HRPB acts as a mediator as a neutral third party and facilitates rather than directs the process.
While a case in the hands of a lawyer or a court may take months or years to resolve, mediation usually achieves a resolution in a matter of hours. Taking less time means expending less money on hourly fees and costs. Mediation increases the control the parties have over the resolution. Mediation is more likely to produce a result that is mutually agreeable for the parties. Because the result is attained by the parties working together and is mutually agreeable, compliance with the mediated agreement is usually high. This further reduces costs. While court hearings are public, mediated remains strictly confidential. Parties to mediation are typically ready to work mutually toward a resolution. The parties are more amenable to understanding the other party’s side and work on underlying issues to the dispute. This has the added benefit of often preserving the relationship the parties had before the dispute. The mediator acts as a neutral facilitator and guides the parties through the process.
