Neutralität ist eine grundlegende Anforderung an einen Mediator. Wie definiert sich diese Neutralität? Auf welche Art prüft der Mediator seine Neutralität? Wann erfolgt die Prüfung? Wie unterscheidet sich Neutralität von der ebenfalls geforderten Allparteilichkeit? Welche Unterschiede gibt es in der Neutralität zwischen einem internen Mediator und einem externen Mediator? Diese wichtigen Fragen untersucht der Autor und gibt Antworten. Ausgehend von der Feststellung, dass der Begriff "Neutralität" in der Mediation allgegenwärtig und seit langer Zeit eingesetzt wird, recherchiert Rodigast exemplarisch historische Quellen, einschlägige Fachliteratur, die aktuelle deutsche Gesetzeslage, die Bezugspunkte verschiedener Berufsverbände und auch analytische und systemische Querverweise. Im Ergebnis stellt er fest, dass Neutralität verschiedenartig wahrgenommen und interpretiert wird. Eine tiefgehende Auseinandersetzung und Abgrenzung zu anderen Termini, gerade zur Allparteilichkeit, findet jedoch nur unzureichend statt. Hier setzt Rodigast an und grenzt Neutralität von Allparteilichkeit ab. Darauf aufbauend entwirft er eine Definition zur Neutralität, welche die Persönlichkeit des Mediators, sein Umfeld und die Grenzen seiner Neutralität auf zwei Weisen abbildet: unabhängig vom konkreten Fall und direkt fallbezogen. Auf diese Definition gründend, entwickelt er ein offenes Prüfschema zur umfassenden Beurteilung der Neutralität von Mediatoren. Der Vorteil von Definition und Prüfschema ist offenkundig: Mediatoren erhalten ein Hilfsmittel, um prinzipiell und fallbezogen konkret ihre eigene Neutralität prüfen zu können und damit der Anforderung des Mediationsgesetzes nachzukommen. Sie gewinnen Sicherheit für das eigene Selbst und können diese in das Verfahren einbringen. Die Gefahr, aus mangelnder Neutralität des Mediators ein Verfahren abbrechen zu müssen oder während der Fallbearbeitung in Konflikte mit der eigenen Neutralität zu gelangen, wird deutlich vermindert.
Weshalb gehen Menschen einer Erwerbstätigkeit nach? Was verändert sich bei Ihnen, wenn sich die Arbeitsplatzsituation ändert? Wie beschreiben Menschen ihre Bindung an Organisationen? Sind die prognostizierten Änderungen der Arbeitswelt durch Industrie 4.0/5.0 wirklich neuartig? Diese Fragen werden anhand einer Einzelfallstudie zu Gerhard Gundermann untersucht. Grundlage bilden die Liedtexte der fünf Studioalben und seines letzten Live-Auftrittes, die eine Zeitspanne von 1988 bis 1998 abbilden. Gundermann war in diesen zehn Jahren seit langem erwerbstätig im Tagebau Spreetal-Nordost, wurde versetzt in den Tagebau Scheibe und begann nach der Entlassung eine Umschulung zum Tischler. Er hat in seinen Texten die eigene Erwerbsarbeit intensiv reflektiert. In dieser Untersuchung wird als theoretische Grundlage ein Bindungskonzept aus Sicht des Erwerbstätigen entwickelt. Die klassische Fragestellung wird dabei umgekehrt. Aus: Wie passt der Mensch am besten in die Organisation? wird: Wie passt die Organisation zum Menschen? Wie betrachtet und verändert der Mensch seine Arbeits- und Lebensumwelt? Welche Wirkungen generiert der Binnenkosmos Organisation-Mensch hin zum Individuum? Wie verändern sich Bedürfnisabbildungen und Verhalten, wenn sich die Arbeit ändert? Wofür entscheidet sich der Einzelne? Gerhard Gundermann hat sich in dieser Frage eindeutig positioniert. Sein reflexiver Entwicklungsprozess ist beispielhaft und nachvollziehbar. Damit zeigt sich der direkte Bezug zur Diskussion über die Zukunft der Arbeit. Erwerbsarbeit wird zu Arbeit und der Arbeitnehmer zur Ein-Personen-Organisation, auch im Angestelltenverhältnis. Das bedeutet tiefgreifende Veränderungen für alle Beteiligten im Wertschöpfungsprozess. Agile Unternehmen und Organisationen entwickeln künftig aus dem bisherigen Employer Branding ein neues Partnership Branding. Das wird eine Grundlage für ihren nachhaltigen Erfolg sein.

"Arbitration and mediation in international business was first published in 1996 and was one of the first comprehensive studies on the practice of international business dispute resolution, covering both international commercial arbitration and the so-called ?alternative? techniques such as mediation. The book also provided an empirical analysis of how both arbitration and mediation are conducted in a crossborder context, along with a normative guide to the relative costs and benefits of these two methods. This second edition is not just an updated version of the first edition but a new book in itself: Benefitting from the contributions of two co-authors, the work has been enhanced by discussions of innovative tools for making settlement negotiations more effective, and by the in-depth analysis of practical techniques to integrate mediation and arbitration in international business. Also, a comprehensive new empirical survey was conducted in order to capture new trends in this rapidly developing field. The result is a ?must have? resource for anyone having to deal with potential conflict in international business relationships."--Publisher's website.
In two volumes, Neil Andrews (University of Cambridge) examines civil processes in England and Wales, which are two leading legal jurisdictions in this area of law as many non-resident parties choose to conduct arbitration in London or bring proceedings before the English High Court, notably the Commercial Court. Written in a clear and well-ordered style, Andrews on Civil Processes therefore discusses the most important styles of civil dispute resolution: court proceedings (Volume 1) and mediation and arbitration (Volume 2). Andrews guides the reader through the practice of dispute resolution in all its major forms: public and private, adjudicative, and conciliatory. The subject-matter has been split into two volumes to provide specialists with a choice, however the two volumes are certainly complementary. They provide a complete picture of the court and arbitration systems, and of the developing technique of mediation. Advisors seeking further leads are also assisted by detailed citation of primary sources and rich bibliographical references. *** Volume 1: Court Proceedings - In England, there has been a sustained effort to control court proceedings and render them more efficient. This Volume 1 explores common legal principles and connections between the court system and the alternative techniques of arbitration and mediation. For example, there is discussion of: the four forms of civil justice (Chapter 1: mediation, settlement without mediation, arbitration, and court proceedings); the six phases of court proceedings (Chapter 4); the four forms of English multi-party litigation (Chapter 22); and the five constellations of procedural principle - advice and access, empowering the parties, conditions for sound decision-making, an efficient process, a fair process, and upholding judgment (Chapters 25 to 29). Most recently, reform of costs was examined by Lord Justice Jackson's inquiry in 2009-10. This 2013 publication takes the complex set of reforms and changes introduced in April 2013 into account and provides detailed discussion where relevant (inter alia. qualified one way cost shifting, damages-based agreements, and the changes to conditional fee agreements and the system of settlement offers). A convenient survey of these changes is also set out in the introductory chapter. *** Volume 2: Arbitration and Mediation - Over the last decade, there has been greater resort to non-judicial modes of dispute resolution, notably mediation and arbitration. Mediation is now better understood by businesses and organizations. In England, resort to mediation has increased, including within the heartland of commercial disputes. The Ministry of Justice for England and Wales (2010) reported 'a doubling of mediation activity since 2007.' The main factors driving increased resort to mediation, not just in England, are: (a) the perception that court litigation is unpredictable; (b) the court process is a source of expense, delay, and anxiety; (c) final judgment normally awards victory to only one winner; and (d) trial is open-air justice, visible to mankind in general. Sir Rupert Jackson has also said that 'ADR... is a tool which can be used to reduce costs... It is a sad fact that many cases settle at a late stage, when substantial costs have been run up' ('The Role of Alternative Dispute Resolution..., ' lecture, March 8, 2012). The European Directive 2008/52/EC on Mediation in Civil and Commercial Matters reflects the global rise of this technique. The English courts encourage resort to mediation, in appropriate contexts, by use of costs sanctions. Furthermore, many corporations now prefer to use international arbitration in combination with other ADR mechanisms, as specified in a 'multi-tiered' or 'escalation' dispute resolution clause. These prescribe a step-by-step approach, negotiation and mediation, which must be exhausted before the parties can commence court or arbitral proceedings. The Court of Appeal in Sulamerica Cia Nacional de Seguros SA v. Enesa Engenharia SA (2012) made clear that a contractual reference to mediation as a desirable mechanism is not the same as a clear and binding contractual commitment to engage in mediation. The same court also noted that the agreement to mediate must be sufficiently certain. Lawyers and experts in London have extensive experience of international commercial arbitration. However, London is also increasingly used by non-English parties. In Volume II, detailed discussion of arbitration places the English system in a global context. The subject is systematically arranged in 18 chapters devoted to this complex field. Chapter 3 is looking at the three pillars of commercial arbitration in particular. For non-English lawyers, important points include the following two topics: First, English awards can be challenged before the English High Court on the basis of an error of English law (section 69, Arbitration Act 1996). But, the High Court will grant permission for such an appeal only sparingly. Furthermore, a properly drafted arbitration clause can exclude this possibility of an appeal under section 69. Secondly, as for court enforcement of foreign awards, in Dallah Real Estate & Tourism Holding Co v. Pakistan (2010), the UK Supreme Court refused to enforce a Paris arbitral award, because (in its view) the arbitral tribunal had incorrectly held that the Government of Pakistan was party to the arbitration agreement

After the Crime
Author: Susan L. Miller
Publisher: NYU Press
2012 Winner of the Outstanding Book Award presented by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences Outstanding Academic Title from 2011 by Choice Magazine Too often, the criminal justice system silences victims, which leaves them frustrated, angry, and with many unanswered questions. Despite their rage and pain, many victims want the opportunity to confront their offenders and find resolution. After the Crime explores a victim-offender dialogue program that offers victims of severe violence an opportunity to meet face-to-face with their incarcerated offenders. Using rich in-depth interview data, the book follows the harrowing stories of crimes of stranger rape, domestic violence, marital rape, incest, child sexual abuse, murder, and drunk driving, ultimately moving beyond story-telling to provide an accessible scholarly analysis of restorative justice. Susan Miller argues that the program has significantly helped the victims who chose to face their offenders in very concrete, transformative ways. Likewise, the offenders have also experienced positive changes in their lives in terms of creating greater accountability and greater victim empathy. After the Crime explores their transformative experiences with restorative justice, vividly illustrating how one program has worked in conjunction with the criminal justice system in order to strengthen victim empowerment.
Relational models theory, first developed by Alan Page Fiske, an anthropologist, provides a framework for understanding the psychological bases of social behavior that has in recent years attracted the interest of a diverse and growing group of behavioral and social scientists. It proposes that human activities are structured in accordance with four fundamental models--communal sharing, authority ranking, equality matching, and market pricing--different permutations of which guide thought and behavior in every domain of social life in all cultures. Just as children are biologically programmed to learn language, so are they prepared to recognize the models, which enable human beings to plan and generate their own action; to understand, remember, and anticipate that of others; to coordinate collective action and institutions; and to make moral judgments. This book offers a critical introduction to contemporary relational models theory and illustrates the ways in which it has illuminated a wide range of interpersonal phenomena and stimulated research on individual psychology, collective behavior, and culture. Using methodologies that range from experimental to ethnographic, the authors--leading developmental, social and clinical psychologists, anthropologists, and specialists in organizational behavior and management--discuss the relational foundations of social cognition, the forms of action that create relationships in diverse cultures, perceptions of fairness and justice in families and organizations, emotions and values, moral outrage, interpersonal conflict, and emotional and personality disorders. Relational Models Theory lays out challenges to all who study interpersonal relationships and social processes in varying contexts, and points directions for future work.

In the United Kingdom, adjudication is available as a right for parties to a construction contract, following the enactment of the Housing Grants Construction and Regeneration Act 1996. In general, within a comparatively short period of time, parties in dispute will have a decision from an adjudicator, which, except in limited circumstances, the courts will enforce. Adjudication has become the number one method of dispute resolution in the construction industry. The short timescale means that a party needs to know what to do, when to do it and be able to check that the other party and the adjudicator are following the right steps. A Practical Guide to Construction Adjudication gives parties the necessary information to achieve this. It provides a straightforward overview of the process and procedure of adjudication by reference to legislation and case law, augmented with practical guidance including suggestions on what to do or not to do, drafting tips and checklists. Separate chapters for Scotland and Northern Ireland identify and explain the differences in procedure and judicial interpretation between those jurisdictions and England and Wales, and further detailed explanations of the adjudication regimes in Australia, Ireland, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore are included. Each of the chapters on jurisdictions outside England and Wales has been written by senior experts in those jurisdictions to ensure the content is accurate and insightful. There are a range of helpful appendices including a bank of model form adjudication documents and tabulated detailed comparisons of the Scheme for Construction Contracts, the other major adjudication rules, the major adjudicator nominating bodies and the UK and international regimes. Readers will particularly appreciate the most comprehensive index of adjudication cases available, sorted into 260 subject headings providing immediate access to all the reported cases on any adjudication topic.
