Contemporary Issues in Mediation cover

Is the need for a power balance still necessary for mediation in the Singapore context?

In an increasingly digitised world, what challenges are there for online mediation?

Is the distinction between facilitative and evaluative mediation still relevant?

These questions, and more, are explored in Contemporary Issues in Mediation, the first ever compilation of essays on mediation topics and issues by top mediation students. Carefully selected and edited by leaders in the mediation and negotiation field Associate Professor Joel Lee from the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law, and Marcus Lim, Executive Director of the Singapore International Mediation Institute, this book is not only a unique addition to local mediation literature but also the first in a new annual series.

"I commend the editors for undertaking this project. It is a valuable piece in the matrix that mediation stakeholders in Singapore are steadily forming together. Having promoted mediation as an ADR for the past 20 years, I consider education as a key platform to propel mediation to the next level. University students who have caught the vision will be our flag-bearers and champions in the next 5, 10, 20 years as Singapore evolves into a regional ADR hub. This publication and the following volumes will spur them on!"

"An insightful and refreshing collection of essays that challenge the conventional paradigm of mediation — in every way! This book showcases bold new voices for the mediation field."
