Informal Discussion and Problem-Solving. Majority of disagreements are handled this way, some satisfactorily, others simply “get dropped.”
Negotiation. A bargaining process around differences entered voluntarily by parties who try to educate each other about their needs and interests, to exchange resources, or to address intangible issues such as future relations.
Conciliation. A process in which a third party attempts to help parties to collaborate, but less structured or formal than mediation. (Conciliation is also used as a broad term for many conflict management/resolution processes.)
Facilitation. An impartial third party leads a collaborative process in which individuals and groups with divergent views meet to reach consensus on a goal or to solve a problem. Similar to mediation, but generally does not involve an impasse.
Mediation. A facilitated negotiation; a process by which a mediator assists disputing parties to collaboratively discuss their concerns and problem-solve their issues. Mediators assist in documenting mutually acceptable points of agreement the parties may reach. The mediator does not have authoritative decision-making or enforcing power and participation by the parties is voluntary, private and face-to-face.
Arbitration. A private process conducted by one or more third parties who decide how the dispute will be resolved. The outcome may be “binding” or “non-binding”/”advisory.”
