Duties and Dilemmas: The Practical Application of Ethics in Mediation

28th September 2022 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm

This seminar will combine a modest amount of talk and electronic chalk with scenarios and tricky questions. The aim is to encourage us to reflect and share what each of us would do when faced with an ethical dilemma in a mediation, and why.

We will set the scene, connecting ethical frameworks with the fundamental principles of mediation. We will then go on and explore how different ethical duties may come into tension in hard cases, and explore how each of us might try to manage or resolve such tensions.

While the dilemmas may be easy to answer at the extremes of black and white, it may be that the trickier cases in the middle contain many more shades of grey.

Who: The session will be led by Craig Cathcart, mediator and Senior Lecturer in Dispute Resolution at Queen Margaret University, Edinburgh. It will be of interest to any practising mediator.

How: Online Zoom

When: Wednesday 28 September 1.30pm-4pm

How much: £30 members £60 non members
