ABSTRACT

This study examines a successful mediation case of the Buk-Ansan sub-station siting conflict in Korea. An analytic framework of three steps was used including: understanding mediation, assessing the situation, and reaching agreement. In the step of understanding mediation, the mediators gained agreement from both parties in three ways: verbal agreement of the representatives from both parties, consensus-gaining process of the residents, and written agreement from both parties. In the step of assessing the situation, the mediators verified the main causes of the conflict and enhanced mutual understanding of the issues. In the step of reaching agreement, the mediators found that the objective evaluation of alternatives was important and the task force conducted a joint fact-finding process. This study argues that this case could reach a win-win resolution particularly due to neutrality of mediators and weak BATNAs of the parties.
