The Importance of Mediation for Society

The purpose of mediation and conflict management is to resolve the dispute peacefully and promote mutual understanding at the social, organizational, legal and political levels.

Conflicts are an integral part of life and this is normal. To resolve and manage conflicts and disputes, an effective mechanism such as mediation was invented. Mediation arises due to the need to resolve personal, relational, structural and cultural conflicts that arise in social, business and private settings.

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in demand for mediators to resolve conflicts in the public arena, and the demand in mediation of private sector companies and organizations has been increasing recently.
