settlement of disputes in relation to
formal judicial procedures may
to be used in two ways: first,

The arbitral Tribunal

Arbitration courts are
two types:

  • arbitration
    the court formed by the parties for
    resolution of a specific dispute (lat. ad
    — for a particular case);

  • formed and
    acting on an ongoing basis with
    formed legal entities
    where the subjects of civil relations
    their agreement can pass on
    investigate and resolve or already
    the dispute, or disputes that may
    arise between the parties in
    future (institutional).

can be used to resolve
disputes between ordinary citizens
not entrepreneurs, but most often
arbitration is used
merchants in disputes among themselves.

disputes disputes between the owner and
the state can not be resolved
the arbitration courts. The state may
to participate in the arbitral dispute as
the participant of civil legal relations

buyer or seller, but such cases
are extremely rare[3].


Conflict isolated
two kinds of negotiations going on within
conflict relations and conditions of
cooperation. The negotiations
collaborative, not
exclude the possibility that the parties may
appear differences and on this basis
there is a conflict. But it is possible
the opposite situation, when after
conflict resolution former
rivals start to cooperate.

The types of joint decisions
the talks:

  • Compromise;

  • Asymmetrical

  • Finding
    a fundamentally new solution by

Compromise means
the parties go on mutual concessions.
Compromise is real then
when the parties are ready to meet
at least a part of each other’s interests.

When the interests of the parties
do not allow them to find the “middle”
the decision, the parties can take
asymmetric the solution, the relative
compromise. In the case of an assignment of one
side significantly exceeds assignment
other. The first side is deliberately
on it, otherwise it will incur even greater

The negotiators
can also resolve contradictions
by finding a fundamentally new
solutions. This type of joint solution
were extensively developed by us
researchers R. Fisher and W. URY, in
1980-ies[4]. This method
based on an open, hard
the analysis of the true alignment of interests
opponents and allows them to consider
the existing problem is wider than initially
the specified positions. The search for fundamentally
the new solution opens up a completely
additional opportunities for the parties on the basis


Mediation is
the dispute settlement procedure
(conflict) with the participation of a third neutral,
party, not interested
in the conflict parties — the mediator,
which helps the parties to develop
a certain agreement on the dispute, when
the parties are in full control

the dispute and its resolution. Has
certain conditions and rules of conduct,
the sequence of action and is based
on the principles of voluntariness,
confidentiality, mutual respect,
equality of the parties, neutrality and
impartiality of the mediator and transparency
