Timely, efficient, and responsible resolution of conflicts is more important than ever. What to do when tensions escalate, and parties fail to negotiate on their own? How can we give negotiation a chance, instead of going to court, going on strike or even to war? We can try mediation, which enables the pursuit of negotiation by other means. Mediation is increasingly sought by individuals, corporation, and governments, because they wish to remain in charge of their destiny and seek constructive solutions to end their most intractable disputes.
Mediation: Negotiation by Other Moves provides mediators, parties and other stakeholders with a powerful and thorough overview of how mediation succeeds. Its methodology elucidates grounding principles, real cases, concrete skills to reinforce and practical formulas to use. It presents new avenues to prepare for mediation and to navigate its process smoothly, from opening to settlement. This volume offers a one-stop, pragmatic framework for mediation, built upon decades of academic and practical experience, that applies to fields as varied as family, business and labor, public affairs, and international relations.
