What is the role of mediators?
Mediators apply mediation methods that keep the parties at the table by facilitating their communication. It helps the parties to find their own solutions. While doing this, the mediator does not make a decision that resolves the issue, and does not offer a solution option to the parties. The mediator must be an impartial and independent person. If the mediator has a serious relationship with one of the parties, he should not mediate.Sayfamızı Paylaşın
