The publication of a recent paper (Epstein and Epstein, 2006) has led me to review my own mediation practice, not only with regard to identifying barriers but also in an attempt to pinpoint ‘what works’ in mediation. A return to the theory of hope has appeared particularly relevant as one of many factors that may assist people to reduce or end conflicts (Wilson 2002, pp 555–8).
