When and how does remote mediation come into the spotlight?

Members of IMI’s Young Mediators’ Initiative recently participated in a meeting of “The Mediator Network“, normally reserved for members only. Discussion revolved around the role of ‘remote mediation’, and resulted in a paper on the topic which can be downloaded below.

YMI members enjoyed the exchange. It was especially useful as it was a topic of interest for everyone, and they all felt they were able to contribute and take something home.
