|Title:||The structuring principles of Mediation in Portugal|
|Keywords:||Alternative means of conflict resolution|
|Abstract:||This paper focuses on the description and analysis of the principles that structure and guide mediation as an alternative means of conflict resolution in the Portuguese legal system. To this end, mediation will be individualized and differentiated from other alternative means of conflict resolution, and its advantages and disadvantages will be highlighted. Subsequently, the article will focus on the densification of each of the prevailing principles in mediation: voluntariness, confidentiality, impartiality, responsibility, competence, and enforceability, among others, to identify the interpretive problems that may arise in a practical situation. How these principles interact in the different stages of the mediation process will be explained, as well as the possible subjects of this procedure. Finally, we will make some recommendations for better dissemination and implementation of mediation as a means of conflict resolution.|
