Mediation

In mediation generally a third party is involved who acts as facilitator. In a typical mediation, there is always a win – win situation. Mediation comprises of an act of bringing two parties in a dispute closer together towards an agreement through alternative dispute resolution. It is a dialogue in which a neutral third party, the mediator, using appropriate techniques, assists two or more pairs to help them negotiate an agreement, with concrete effects, on a matter of common interest.

Mediation applies to different fields, with some common peculiar elements and some differences for each of its specialities. The main fields of mediation include commerce, legal disputes and diplomacy, but other forms of mediation appear in other fields as well.

In other words, mediation covers any activity in which impartial third party(often a professional)facilitates an agreement on any matter in the common interest of the parties involved.
