Mediation in Russia: Regulation and Practice

Mediation in Russia: Regulation and Practice

(p.1165) Chapter 23 Mediation in Russia: Regulation and Practice

Dmitry Davydeko

Oxford University Press

Litigation, which is a fairly brief and inexpensive procedure, is currently a common dispute resolution technique in Russia, especially for business. Yet, in certain Russian regions mediation has been practiced even since the mid-1990s. The importance of mediation to harmonise social relations and reduce the courts' caseload has been recognised by the Russian state. A federal law on mediation of civil, commercial, family and some other disputes has been in force since 2011. This establishes a general regulative framework but many legal uncertainties still remain and need to be further clarified. Experience of Russian mediation providers in Saint-Petersburg, Moscow, Ural, Rostov and Sibir shows that demand for mediation mostly depends on promotional and educative activity of the mediation providers rather. However, mediation needs further legislative support and incentives and other measures to be more recognised and adopted by businesses and individuals.
