The EU Mediation Atlas: Practice and Regulation

The EU Mediation Atlas: Practice and Regulation provides a highly practical guide to the present status of mediation in the member states of the EU. Focusing on commercial disputes, it specifically deals with court annexed mediation. It is organised on a country-by-country basis and investigates the legal framework in each jurisdiction and the available mediation schemes and providers, tackling issues such as confidentiality and enforceability, as well as explaining the general rules governing mediation and mediators. It also outlines the approach of the EU thus far in relation to harmonising mediation across the member states, adopting a practical approach to the subject matter.
