THE PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE OF MEDIATION IN THE EU DIGITAL MARKET:
P2B, DSM & THE DSA PROPOSAL

Mediation = Dispute Meditation & Medication

Dimitris Emvalomenos, Lawyer, LL.M., Accredited Mediator of the Greek Ministry of Justice & the Centre of Effective Dispute Resolution (CEDR), London, UK, Dep. Managing Partner at the Law Firm “Bahas, Gramatidis & Partners” (BGP), is the author of the paper "THE PARTICULAR IMPORTANCE OF MEDIATION IN THE EU DIGITAL MARKET: P2B, DSM & THE DSA PROPOSAL", firstly published, in Greek, in the law magazine of Nomiki Bibliothiki “Arbitration & Mediation and Other Alternative Types of Dispute Resolution”.

Summary

The future of transactions in the European Union is expected to be largely digital, using, in particular, online platforms in an ever-evolving technological environment. In this digital market for goods and services, alternative out-of-court dispute resolution mechanisms, especially Mediation, will become increasingly necessary for a number of important reasons, particularly speed and cost. Moreover, the EU's legislative choices in various areas confirm this. Mediation in Greece, either as a specifically regulated institution (formal) or as an out-of-court dispute resolution procedure (informal), is already applied in a wide range of legal matters.
