Abstract

The Mediation Meta-Model introduced in this article provides a framework for understanding a range of mediation practice models and their relationship to each other and to other ADR processes. It extends the work of Riskin in two ways: first by revising the dimensions of his original Grid to form a Mediation Meta-Model and second, by identifying and labeling a range of practice models within this Meta-Model. The practice models draw from Boulle\u27s work and extend Boulle\u27s four primary models to five. This Meta-Model is developmental insofar as it has the ability to accommodate emerging and changing practice models of mediation. In short, it is a useful tool for tracking developments in the mediation move ment, gaining an overview of mediation practice in a given jurisdiction, and making decisions about how to regulate mediation practice without compromising diversity. It is also a useful tool for matching mediators with disputants and the dispute
