This paper discusses some of the theoretical and practical dilemmas that exist in relation to neutrality in mediation. First, the concept of neutrality and its connotations are explored, along with its contradictions and difficulties. Second, the paper considers some of the proposals that have been put forward to date in terms of responding to these difficulties. Finally, the paper suggests looking to ethical principles about appropriate uses of mediator power to develop an alternative, contextualised approach to neutrality.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
