In the construction industry the value of mediation has been widely acknowledged worldwide. This can be shown by the number of jurisdictions in which courts have enforced an obligation to negotiate on the parties involved where they have to adopt mediation to settle their construction disputes.
This book examines the expansion and development of court-connected construction mediation provisions across a number of jurisdictions. It looked at many countries, including England, Wales, USA, South Africa and Hong Kong.
It includes contributions from academics and professionals from six different countries to produce a truly international comparative study, which is of high importance to construction managers as well as legal professionals.
