In Hungary, decree number 69/2009. (XII. 17.) of the Ministry of Justice regulates the professional training of mediators. In order to get on the Register of Mediators of the Ministry of Justice, applicants need to fulfill the below criteria: Entry to the Register of Mediators of the Ministry of Justice (IM) is conditional on:

  • In our experience, it is also an advantage for someone who wants to deal with conflict management to have self-knowledge or self-reflection experience, as the role of the mediator is a complex and sensitive role.
