Abstract Mediation is in Romania a new way of solving the conflict relations, without them the subject of judicial approaches. Although promoted as an alternative to trial in court, mediation is used occasionally as an emerging initiative.Purpose of this study is to present the organization of mediation in Romania, the main categories of professionals involved, and their general principles of interventionThe study is based on the existing legal framework, the experience of the first nationally organized trainings, and the description of forms of organization of mediators in Romania. In essence, mediation can be seen as the art of opening an inter- personal communication channel between the conflicting parties to obtain „win-win“solutions For the success of such a process, the mediator must be primarily a perfect communicator, creator of that communication channel and also the main support and„administrator” of it, fully confident that, regardless of the conflict causes, they can be resolved through communication. Although mediation is currently in Romania rather theoretical alternative to the judicial system, it has the potential to develop a culture of dialogue, contributing significantly to finding solutions to conflict situations based on communication.
