Mediation is a way of engaging creatively with conflict. To engage creatively we need tactics and we need vision. During the latter part of the 20th century, vision in Western democracies became somewhat limited, faded, obscure – perhaps invisible. Tactics, on the other hand, became somewhat inflated, perhaps to the point where vision has become the preferred tactical manoeuvre, given a range of options.
