14-12-2012

This briefing paper tries to explore why mediation is not used more often as a means of dispute resolution. It identifies a number of reasons why mediation is not resorted to more frequently and presents proposals on how legislation could respond to these obstacles. The author wishes to highlight that, ideally, removing these obstacles will lead to an even less frequent use of mediation.
