The ideas and ethos of mediation and different techniques used in mediation have gradually become better known and more highly valued in the legal system.
Many professionals worldwide find that mediation's benefits - both for society as a whole and for those unable to resolve their disputes on their own - are huge. This can lead them to try to convince others that many creative opportunities are lost if mediation is not considered as an appropriate means of dispute resolution. Voluntary participation remains, however, one of the cornerstones of the mediation process. It creates a special dynamic in enabling people to recognize and take up the opportunities that mediation offers to them.
This book is therefore a collection of texts from experts working in many different fields and in different countries around the world: Australia, U.K., US and Denmark. This sharing of experience and insight helps us all to reflect ion ways of improving systems currently in operation in our respective countries.
The book is published with financial support from Margot and Thorvald Dreyers Fond.
