The mediation model advocated and employed by the Network is that put forward in the Wrocław Declaration from 2007. It involves a team of co-mediators, a man and a woman, one from each of the countries as the parents and one with a legal, the other with a psychosocial or educational background. Experience has shown that when the mediators reflect the couple’s cultural and language make-up as well as the complexities of the legal situation, the parents feel innately understood and are more likely to come to a joint solution. A further requirement in abduction proceedings is the mediators’ ability and willingness to take on cases at short notice and if need be to travel to another city or country.
