First, I will describe our experience of neighbor mediation in Lambeth, in south London about how it was established
and how it works, with some examples. Then you can consider
whether this approach is relevant in your circumstances. Next, I will say a few words about mediation in schools.
Then I will suggest some reasons why the hypothesis is a reasonable one, and I will outline the ideals on which
this practice is based, ending with a vision for the future. (excerpt)
