Alternative Dispute Resolution. Mediation as a Cost-Effective Method of Dispute Resolution

Disputes in the construction industry abound, and there are a number of procedures to resolve them as an alternative to arbitration and litigation. The best known form of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) is mediation which is attracting interest as a real alternative to more traditional methods. It has been widely used since the early 1980s in the USA where it originated. It involves using a third party as mediator, acceptable to the disputants between whom mutual understanding to resolve the dispute is not possible. A. Jawad
