(p.605) Chapter 10 Mediation in Hungary: Legal Foundations, Recent Reforms, EU Convergence

Mediation in Hungary was initially regulated only for specific kinds of mediation (consumer protection, health care). The first general statutory regulation was adopted in the form of Act LV/2002 on Mediation, which even today remains the main legal source for mediation. Directive 2008/52/EC was implemented in Hungary in 2009. Since then, binding rules for the professional education of mediators have to be observed. The enforceability of settlements has been facilitated by allowing for subsequent approval by the court. Cost incentives have been extended. Recent reforms aim at the further strengthening of mediation as an alternative to court proceedings. Mediation may also be performed by way of video-conference.
