In this week’s episode of This Week In Mediation, presented by Professor Nadja Alexander and Aled Davies, we learn about Bundesverband Mediation – the National Mediation Association of Germany and highlights from their annual congress in Dresden. We look at new and emerging mediation models. The conference also focused on the role of mediation in relation to political themes such as migration and integration. One interesting initiative that is proving to be very successful involves enrolling members of the migrant community on a one and half year mediation training programme. Discover why it’s such a successful initiative and how they increase engagement in the mediation process.
For our final piece of mediation news we travel across the pond to analyse a decision from the Appeal Court of Massachusetts which held that mediation remains confidential even if the parties have been up to all sorts of shenanigans! All this and more coming up in the show.
