Mediation is an informal process involving the out-of-court settlement of conflicts by means of a mediator, so it can be conducted anytime the parties need it and especially in their voluntary presence. The result of the dispute is thus decided by the participants in the mediation process; the mediator is only responsible for the effective leading of the process.
A mediator, as an independent and impartial person, helps the parties identify their interests and supports them in finding solutions to the conflict which are realistic and useful for all sides. The goal and outcome of the mediation is a clearly formulated, comprehensible and achievable agreement, which is made by all participants in the mediation process.
The main principles of mediation include the impartiality, neutrality and independence of the mediator and the equality of the parties. The undisputed advantage of mediation is that it is less costly than judicial proceedings, may be conducted within a relatively short period of time, and is usually less stressful than judicial proceedings.
