How Parties in a Mediation Express their Power
While the discussion generally talks about mediation one of the main issues it points out is how parties in a mediation can express their powers. Different scholars including Mayer, Kelly, Moore, Haynes, and Neumann have offered different opinions on the issues that affect powers of parties. Newman, for example, talks about the different types of individual power including aspects such as formal authority, information, resources, association, nuisance, legal prerogative, procedural power, moral power, habitual power, personal characteristics, definitional power, as well as rewards and sanctions.
Neumann (1992), on his part, stated the various variables that can contribute or detract people from expressing their power. Such issues include belief system, education, force, gender, income, knowledge, personality, self-esteem, and status. Kelly (1995) describes the factors that might create the possibility power inequalities in the mediation process. This includes cognitive style and capabilities, dynamics of disputant relationship, economic self-sufficiency, and institutionalized hierarchies(Michael D. Lang 212). Age and gender differences might also cause these power inequalities.
