Arbitration is a humane yet rational instrument of pacification that focuses on facilitating and resolving legal disputes outside of the court system. Arbitrators prefer to use an open, friendly, practical, and peaceful approach to seek a just and durable solution.
If the best general is the one who never fights, then the most efficient Mediator is the one who maintains neutrality while hearing and understanding the diverse perspectives and evidence in a conflict without judging or interrupting the parties involved. Mediators use their legal knowledge to foster conflict resolution among disputants by negotiating a compromise rather than having them engage in a costly and time-consuming court process.
