Online Mediation

The “fourth party”

Online Mediation is a widespread practice worldwide. It has the form of a standard face to face mediation only it is assisted by technology and the synchronous or asynchronous communication between the mediator and the parties. This way the resolution process manages to cross borders and jurisdictions, creating significant advantages for parties that reside or established in different locations.

Online mediation is gaining ground

Online mediation requires specific mediation skills and adequate computer literacy. The process is practical, low-cost but has also been criticized for its inability to build empathy and immediacy between the parties. Some argue that the online mediation is no more or no less than a standard mediation. One that is simply carried out online. It saves travel time and expenses. The parties can meet each other and the mediator on a computer screen, on their smartphone or simply choose written electronic communication. Whichever angle you look at it from, online mediation is now here more and more as the online communication is part of our everyday life.
