Mediation (ENG)

Mediation is a method of resolving conflict where disputing parties can sit down together with a skilled impartial individual called a mediator. The mediator will help you work out a satisfying solution to the problem that is acceptable to everyone involved.

Mediation is a voluntary & flexible process where all parties participate in peaceful conflict resolution. The Sitges city council makes this available to citizens free of charge.

Mediators are specialists in conflict management and will analyze and support parties in finding satisfactory alternatives. The objective is to restore dialogue and normal relations within the co-responsibility of the parties involved in the conflict.

First, one party needs to make the request. From there, the mediator will contact the different parties involved to assess the feasibility of the mediation process.
