Addressed to all those going through a conflict situation, It’s Time For Mediation focuses on an alternative dispute solution. From the perspective of its regulation as an independent procedure with rules recognized at the legislative level, mediation is a relatively new procedure both at the European and global level. Anyone who wants to solve a dispute quickly and harmoniously can be a beneficiary of mediation. This book aims to reveal how mediation works and the role of the mediator with examples from all over the world but emphasizing Romanian legislation. It also highlights the aspects that validate mediation as a conflict resolution method perfectly adapted to these times, as it resolves conflicts not only by saving money and time but also by reducing emotional consumption. You will understand how mediation finds solutions that satisfy both parties, and in what situations it can intervene with optimal results.
