Abstract

Given Belgian legal doctrine, the rise of mediation in other legal disciplines,
and the influence of the EU, the call for mediation in administrative practice
is increasing in Belgium. The proposed framework for ADR in the legal
doctrine at the beginning of this century was the start of the increasing use of
mediation in Belgian administrative law. This contribution is a study of these
new forms of mediation as they occur in Belgium in the year 2014. On the
basis of two examples (mediation in municipal administrative sanctions and
urban planning), administrative mediation and the associated problems are
outlined.
