Abstract

Starting 2011, mediation has been applied as an alternative extrajudicial procedure for dispute resolution in Russia. The new alternative dispute resolution method involving independent mediators was called to reduce the burden on Russia’s judicial system. After more than 3 years following the introduction of the mediation procedure, the authors are trying to analyse its applicability and influence on development of the judicial and extrajudicial system of dispute resolution in Russia.

This Chapter provides a general overview of regulatory provisions of the mediation procedure. The authors analyse the practice of implementation of this alternative procedure for dispute resolution, including such specific instruments as cross-border mediation and electronic mediation.

The analysis also includes comments on the practical aspects and problems that face the parties to the dispute, the comparison with foreign mediation procedural aspects, as well as some statistics.
