Independent review of mediation: our response
Methodology

Methodology

Scottish Mediation and the Expert Group based their report on a sound evidence base and the Group drew upon examples and experience from across Scotland and internationally. Scottish Government Justice Analytical Services undertook a review of the evidence base for Mediation in the commercial/civil justice system in five other jurisdictions across world (Australia, Canada, England and Wales, Ireland, and the USA) and the report was published on 25 June 2019 and is available at https://www.gov.scot/publications/international-evidence-review-mediation-civil-justice/pages/1/

The report "Bringing Mediation into the mainstream in the civil justice system in Scotland", which can be accessed at https://www.scottishmediation.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/Bringing-Mediation-into-the-Mainstream-in-Civil-Jutsice-In-Scotland.pdf, contains 27 recommendations aimed at encouraging the greater use of mediation in resolving civil disputes in Scotland.
