Process of creating and sharing ideas , information, views , facts feelings, feedback ,  to reach an understanding , a consensus agreement beneficial for both parties involved in the process .

A neutral third -party  work with both sides / multi  parties to reach an agreement -  based on their needs and interests of the parties working together cooperatively and collaboratively  to resolve the dispute thinking various alternatives of win-win solutions . 

If a dispute between the parties cannot resolve it by mediation, they can submit it to arbitration to settle the dispute . The arbitrator—a neutral third person— hears the evidence brought by both sides and makes a decision. is either selected directly by those involved in the dispute or is designated by an arbitration list .

Arbitration is a legal technique for the resolution of disputes outside the courts . An arbitrator’s, arbiter, arbitral tribunal , role is very different from that of a mediator , an arbitrator decides on and imposes a solution him- or herself. By whose decision -the "award" - they agree to be bound.

The arbitrator normally hears both sides at an informal hearing. You can be represented by a lawyer at the hearing, but it’s not required. The arbitrator acts as both judge and jury. After the hearing, he or she issues a decision called an “award.” The arbitrator follows the same legal rules a judge or jury would follow in deciding whether you or the other side has a valid legal claim and should be awarded money, but can usually hear more evidence than a court would allow.

Arbitration can be either binding or nonbinding. If arbitration is nonbinding, either person named in the award can take the matter to court . Binding arbitration is usually final and the winner can easily convert the award into a court judgment that can be enforced just like any other court judgment. In other words, a binding arbitration award is just as good as a judgment you could get from a court.
