Mediation is a new form of alternative regulation of disagreements with the third, neutral, impartial party that is not interested in the conflicted party. Mediator represents this party and helps all participants of the disagreement or court issue to come up with a particular agreement, at the same time parties are fully in control of the decision making process around disagreement dissolvent and conditions of its dissolvent.
Mediation can be used in civil, labor, family and other issues, as well as criminal cases with a small or medium difficulty. Whilst actively using mediation by citizens, as well as legal entities, one can significantly reduce the load on court system, thereby increasing the quality of resolving bigger cases. According to international statistics, 30-40% of all disagreements go through the mediation processes, in 85% of cases positive results were achieved.
The creation of the mediation hall in WKTU is initiated by the regional court within the framework of “Reconciliation: before the court, in court” program.
