APCMC Competition Webinar:

The Mediation Process

During the APCMC your team will be negotiating in the context of a mediation process. It is a terrific time to refresh your understanding of the process.

Mediation is a process in which disputing parties, with the assistance of the mediator, identify the disputed issues, develop options, consider alternatives and endeavour to reach an agreement.

The mediator does not make recommendations or determinations, but does take an active role in helping the parties explore their interests and create their own solutions.
