Mediation refers to a dispute resolution method or procedure, in which a third party agreed by the parties in dispute, act objectively to facilitate parties to understand each others’ positions, achieve conciliation and finally resolves the dispute. Since mediation boasts the features of neutrality, objectivity, impartiality, fairness, agreement and harmony and also the advantages such as convenience, flexibility, cost-effectiveness, it has rapidly developed worldwide into another major means to solve disputes, in addition to litigation and arbitration. UNICITRAL passed the Model Law on International Commercial Conciliation in 2002. Subsequently, more and more national legislatures have enacted laws to encourage parties to solve economic disputes through mediation. Some of the national laws further regulated that conciliation agreement can be recognized and enforced by court. Major arbitration institutions in the world regulate that the arbitral tribunal may make a consent award based on a conciliation agreement. Many countries encourage pretrial mediation or allow the combination of litigation and mediation. Resolving disputes through mediation has broad prospects.
