2 Part 1 BACKGROUND INFORMATION

3 Aristotle (383 – 321 BC) Nicomachean Ethics, (book 5 chapter 7) (…) therefore corrective justice will be the intermediate between loss and gain (…) and they seek the judge as an intermediate, and in some states they call judges mediators, on the assumption that if they get what is intermediate they will get what is just.

4 Seneca „ Saper negoziare E‘un‘arte che si può apprendere comprendendo la posizione degli opposti perchè Nessun vento è favorevole per chi non sa dove sta andando“

9 Part 2 What is Mediation?

10 Mediation is principled negotiating. Its aim is to resolve disputes without going to court. Mediation is a type of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR).

11 Mediation at Administrative Courts … …. offers the parties of an administrative dispute the opportunity to stop the legal procedure and sit down at a table in a comfortable and quiet space and talk about the incident that led to the lawsuit.

12 The participants The parties and their legal consultants are not alone during the mediation-meetings There is always a neutral judge-mediator that is trained in conducting mediations. It is his/her job to structure the discussion between the citizen (applicant) and the officer of the public body (defendant) and other (third) parties so that they can communicate with each other effectively and find a solution of the conflict by themselves.

She then threw out the juicy pulp. © Florida Department of Children and Families

16 Two Sisters and an Orange Each sister only got half an orange, when in effect, they could have each had the whole orange. What could the sisters have done in order to satisfy both of their desires for the orange? Seems quite clear.. © Florida Department of Children and Families
