Mediation in Moldova, a Fast Alternative for Dispute Settlement

The first law on mediation dates from 2007, but it was only in 2015, when a new law was adopted, that things started to move in the right direction in Moldova. Victor Cojocari is one of the most active mediators in the Republic of Moldova, settling disputes for the past 9 years, and as a trainer sharing the secrets of this profession with the others. In an interview for the Cu DREPTuL podcast, he talked about the process of mediation, time and costs involved, and the subtle art of reaching an agreement without going to court.

As part of the National Campaign for Healthy Justice, the Access to Justice Project in Moldova supports Cu DREPTuL, a podcast on access to justice and human rights, which aims to be not only an informative but also an educational tool, useful to all interested in these topics in the Moldovan context. The podcast brings relevant speakers on a variety of issues including, legal support for the marginalized, children’s rights, domestic violence, human trafficking, state-supported legal aid, role of public defenders, etc.
