The European Commission has selected in 2008 the WikiMediation Project as a platform of information about the amicable resolution of disputes. After eighteen months, the progress of the WikiMediation will be presented during the 3rd European Conference on Mediation on May 27 & 28, 2010 at Bourg-la-Reine, Grand Paris, France.

This project was initially established in three languages: French, English and Portuguese by the EPMN-Mediators Associates in partnership with The Professional Chamber of Mediation and Negotiation, the largest French union of mediators and Fórum-Mediação. It is now open in German.

The success of this action which is based on the MediaWiki technology used to propel Wikipedia has resulted in over 7,000 pages in French version, 1,000 pages in the English version and 830 pages in Portuguese version. As a result over a period of eighteen months, WikiMediation counts nearly two million of visits, more than 1500 registered users and 500 external links.

A global positioning on Internet places the WikiMediation among the 800,000 most visited websites in the world. Numerous are the publications that mention the WikiMediation as a source in this area, both specialized and increasingly popular, that mediation is, as a separate and specific discipline which possesses a process structured and finely developed by the facilitators of the EPMN.

After this period of development, the WikiMediation invites all professionals and friends of mediation to make their contributions. They can create a presentation of their organization, contribute topics regarding all practices of mediation that professionals can identify, insert the logos of their organization, access map through Google, videos links related to Dailymotion or YouTube, become an administrator in order to secure information coming from their country. And if the languages currently proposed by the WikiMediation are still insufficient, agreements can be developed to host other adaptations and promote Alternative Dispute Resolution in the world.
