    • Abstract:
      One of the strengths of mediation is that individuals are capable of crafting their own settlements, and many mediators are reluctant to monitor or interfere with a settlement that the parties endorse. I suggest that mediators cannot ignore the nature of the settlement. Parties may be unreliable judges of their own best interests, and there are inevitably wider social issues that need to be considered. My analysis implies that there ought to be some mechanism for external review of all mediated agreements. Although this conclusion might make mediation less efficient, it is necessary to maintain the integrity of the process. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
