Why does mediation fail?

29th August 2019

In the rare instances where a mediation is not successful, the most common reasons tend to be:

-A lack of commitment to fully engage and make the effort to build success through the mediation process.
-When the mediation takes place too late when the conflict has escalated too far.
-When parties are concerned that the mediator is not impartial, and is favouring the other person(s)
-If parties do not trust that the process will be kept entirely confidential.
