Arbitration/Mediation is a method of “Alternative Dispute Resolution” (ADR) widely used in countries with developed legal systems. Arbitration/Mediation is a method that parties can use to resolve their conflicts with the help of an impartial third party, without going to court or by court referral. Its flexibility and effectiveness have enabled arbitration/mediation to be a conflict resolution method that brings the parties of the conflict together at the right point in business, family, school, and even international conflicts. The parties, who decide to resolve the conflict between themselves voluntarily or in the presence of a(n) (arbiter)mediator suggested by a court, have the opportunity to discuss their problems and find the best solution for themselves in the company of a completely impartial and non-judgmental arbiter/mediator by conveying the subject of conflict to the arbiter/mediator.

In addition to conflict resolution, arbitration/mediation can function as a means of preventing conflicts, as well as facilitating the contract negotiation process. Arbitration/Mediation is a valid method for conflicts in many areas. Conflicts eligible for arbitration/mediation may differ in each country.
