The Malta Mediation Centre was established to provide a forum where two or more parties, involved in the dispute or litigation, may voluntarily refer or be referred by the Court or other adjudicating authority, to resolve their dispute through mediation, that is, the process in which a mediator, accredited by the Center, acts as an impartial third party with a view to facilitating negotiations between the parties in order to help them resolve their dispute by reaching a voluntary and timely agreement.
