<p>If managed responsibly, mediation is preferable to protracted conflict, but it remains underutilized in much of the private and public sectors.

<p>THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE FOR ANYONE ENGAGED IN MEDIATION</p> <p>Timely, efficient, and responsible resolution of conflicts is more important than ever. What to do when tensions escalate, and parties fail to negotiate on their own? How can we give negotiation a chance, instead of going to court, strike or even war? We can try mediation, which enables the pursuit of negotiation by other means. Mediation is increasingly sought by individuals, corporations, and governments, because they wish to remain in charge of their destiny and seek constructive solutions to end their most intractable disputes.</p><p><i>Mediation: Negotiation by Other Moves</i> provides mediators, parties, and other stakeholders with a powerful and thorough overview of how mediation proceeds and succeeds. Its methodology elucidates grounding principles, real cases, concrete skills to reinforce and practical formulas to use. It presents new avenues to prepare for mediation and to navigate its process smoothly, from opening to settlement. This volume offers a one-stop, pragmatic framework for mediation, built upon decades of academic and practical experience, that applies to fields as varied as family, business and labor, public affairs, and international relations.</p> <p>“In today’s world we are called to be mediators in almost everything we do: mediation has become an essential aspect of true leadership and success. This book is a must read, not just for experts and practitioners, but also for whoever wants to foster inclusiveness and reciprocal understanding.”<BR> —ENRICO LETTA, Dean of the Paris School of International Affairs and former Prime Minister of Italy</p><p>“As a negotiation adviser, I have often observed the critical importance of responsible mediation. This brilliant book offers the secret keys to delivering success for all sides.”<BR> —KALYPSO NICOLAÏDIS, Professor of International Relations, Oxford University and European University Institute</p>
