Mediation regarding children, or cooperation talks as they are called in Sweden, is an important institution to keep disputing parents out of court. The question, however, is whether it is an effective and efficient method for reaching agreements between parents, especially considering the way the child's best interests and wishes are now clearly addressed in the legislation. This article reports an empirical study of how this mediation is understood by various participants.
