Mediation is now well-established in the UK as a successful form of dispute-resolution.  What is not always appreciated is how fully developed mediation is in the USA.  There, mediation can be “evaluative” (mediator takes a positive role, assessing the merits of the opposing cases);  “transformative” (mediator reconciles the parties before attempting to resolve the dispute);  or “facilitative” (mediator merely guides parties towards a compromise).  In the UK, mediations are generally “facilitative”.   There would seem to be scope for using other forms, as in America.
