Mediation is a voluntary conflict resolution system that brings parties together, makes them understand each other and ensures to provide a communication process in order to make the parties reach their own solution by using systematic techniques on the part of an independent and objective third person who is qualified.
A mediator is a natural person who realises the mediation activities and is registered to the mediation register formed by the Ministry.
The parties can agree on mediation before opening the case or during the process of the case. The court can also encourage parties to appeal the mediation. Before the beginning of the mediation the court should inform parties about the rules, process and legal consequences of mediation. The court should also remind the parties of the benefits of mediation such as social, economic and psychological benefits.
