Mediation

A way of resolving disputes in which an impartial mediator assists two or more parties involved in a conflict or dispute to reach an agreement. Unlike arbitration, the parties rather than the mediator, decide the terms of the settlement. As this definition makes clear, the purpose and focus of mediation is the resolution of a dispute or conflict. Whether an agreement is reached or not, and whatever the content of that agreement, the parties themselves determine the outcome rather than accepting something imposed by a third party.
