Post-traumatic stress in victims of sex violence is a side effect of the violence inflicted on them, but also there are other stress agents that are not closely linked to the sexual violence although they might be related. Partly, these stressing agents are originated by the conflicts occurred within the closest referential environment, family, partner, etc., after the sexual violence episode. These conflicts mean a perception or believe of interests understood as something incompatible. In this connection, mediation can be an efficient tool to solve these kinds of family conflict. The purpose of mediation will then be to mediate between the victim and his/her family, not including the offender who has forced the episode/s of sexual violence.

This article sets out the general guidelines of the MIMACE Project: «Intercultural Mediation as a Tool for Improving the Family-School Partnership». This is a programme for schools that can have a high level of conflict related to multiculturalism in their classrooms. The main goal is to improve the necessary relationship between the schools and the families through mediation, so that this alliance can have an impact on the welfare of students, who can ultimately benefit from it. To do this, two types of actions are presented: first, prevention, based on creating more respectful school cultures, and, second, the mediation as a strategy for conflict solving conflicts once they have emerged.

Family businesses make a great contribution to the Spanish economy. However, statistics prove that few of them survive intergenerational successions. The solutions that are usually offered are limited to cover mainly legal or economic matters, leaving emotional aspects aside. This article proposes the use of mediation to manage these conflicts in a comprehensive manner, with a focus on preventive measures, such as family protocols which serve as a guide for the future both of the firm and the family.

Med-Arb is a controversial hybrid of two processes in which the parties first use mediation, and if the process is not successful, arbitration. In the «pure» form, the same Neutral assists both processes. The main advantage of this practice is the time and money that can be saved. But how can an arbitrator who has held discussions with the parties satisfy the requirements of «impartiality» and be a «fair arbitrator?» The issues analyzed are: 1) if the same Neutral can fairly serve in the Med-Arb process, 2) the UNCITRAL and ICC rules regarding the Med-Arb process, and 3) some recommendations.
