NON-VIOLENT DISPUTE RESOLUTION METHODS
In politics and in diplomacy, mediation obviously offers a non-violent method of dispute resolution, although it is usually assumed or included in definitions of other methods. Some theorists have claimed that mediation is the foundation of a post-modern ethics and that it sidesteps traditional ethical issues with pre-defined limits of morality.
Others claim that mediation is a form of harms reduction or de-escalation, especially in its large-scale application in peace process and similar negotiation, or the bottom-up way it is performed in the peace movement where it is often called mindful mediation.
