Title: Standing on the Shoulders of Giants: Artistry, Expertise, and Professionalism in Mediation and the Role of Higher Education
Authors: Zariski, Archie
Keywords: mediation
Issue Date: 12-May-2009
Series/Report no.: Working Paper;1
Abstract: This paper examines what it takes to be a good mediator. It suggests that mediators should strive for artistry in their work which is the result of “reflection in action”. The paper then surveys the fields of knowledge drawn upon by some of the “giants” in the mediation field. These examples help us to recognize the breadth of knowledge necessary for artistry in practice which should become the new professional standard. Finally, it proposes that this knowledge be academically taught as part of an undergraduate degree.
