Mediation = Dispute Meditation & Medication
Dimitris Emvalomenos, Lawyer, LL.M., Accredited Mediator of the Greek Ministry of Justice & the Centre of Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), London, UK, Dep. Managing Partner at the Law Firm “Bahas, Gramatidis & Partners” (BGP), is the author of the paper “THE PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE OF MEDIATION IN THE EU DIGITAL MARKET: P2B, DSM & THE DSA PROPOSAL”, firstly published, in Greek, in the law magazine of Nomiki Bibliothiki “Arbitration & Mediation and Other Alternative Types of Dispute Resolution”.
The future of transactions in the European Union is expected to be largely digital, using, in particular, online platforms in an ever-evolving technological environment. In this digital market for goods and services, alternative out-of-court dispute resolution mechanisms, especially Mediation, will become increasingly necessary for a number of important reasons, particularly speed and cost. Moreover, the EU’s legislative choices in various areas confirm this. Mediation in Greece, either as a specifically regulated institution (formal) or as an out-of-court dispute resolution procedure (informal), is already applied in a wide range of legal matters.
