Mediation and collaborative law

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther chapter contributionResearchpeer-review


Parties in conflict may not be able to negotiate without the assistance of a third party. In days of old, the third party may have been a village elder, a trusted family member or a priest. No doubt, informal mediation continues to take place but in the last 30 years, it has evolved in Western cultures into a profession, albeit one that is often attached to other professions, such as that of law or social work. (For a more detailed account of the history of ADR, in which the centre of gravity has been towards mediation, see Chapter 7). Mediation is the most common form of assisted negotiation.
