One of the pillars of mediation enshrined in the Standard of Conduct for Mediators is informed consent. This means that mediation participants have the right to get full information about any aspect of their dispute before agreeing to any resolution. It matters because mediation is about transparency and being able to make correct decisions for each party to the mediation. To do otherwise risks using the mediation to perpetuate a fraud.
