This chapter focuses on the Scottish Mediation Network (SMN) and the Scottish Mediation Register (SMR). It begins with a historical background on the SMN before discussing how the SMR works. The objectives of the SMN are: to promote mediation and other related forms of conflict management for the benefit of the public, individuals and society in Scotland and elsewhere; to encourage awareness, understanding and appropriate use of mediation; to support and promote education, training and research in skills and best practice in the use of mediation; to create and encourage links among the various fields of mediation; and to promote and organise standards of professional conduct and training. The chapter also considers the impact of the European Union Mediation Directive on mediation in Scotland and concludes by discussing the collaboration among mediators in the country.
