Reconciliation and Mediation in Court

Reconciliation and Mediation in Court

(p.105) 5 Reconciliation and Mediation in Court
Khul' Divorce in Egypt

Nadia Sonneveld

American University in Cairo Press

The issue of court-provided reconciliation is discussed. It assesses whether the new family court system offers more 'dialogue' between judges and women litigants and affects judges' perception of women in khul' procedures. The same questions are posed with regard to the professional court-appointed mediators. Although it appears that both judges and the male mediator often relate khul' to women's disobedience, this does not necessarily mean that they treat women unsympathetically.
