Chapter 9: Third-Party Intervention Third Party Intervention:  a wide range of activities that span diverse conflict contexts, they  may be fact finders, process consultants, go-betweens, ombudspersons, etc.   They have  different roles and responsibilities depending on the particular conflict. Third-Party Mandate:  the authority given to the third-party through the dependence placed on  the third party by the disputants.  This power is relational, that is, it is endorsed by the two  disputing parties. Formal Endorsement:   an authorization of certain types of interventions in specific conflict  areas (ie: judges) Informal Endorsement:   an authorization that is based on implicit expectations people have  about who can appropriately intervene in conflicts (ie: parents, clergy, older siblings, etc.) Process Control:   refers to a third party’s ability to organize or structure the procedures that  disputants follow during interaction.  This can include deciding where they will meet, what time,  etc.  Process control most often is exercised by third-parties that are formally endorsed.   Content Control:   the third party’s influence over the arguments and substantive positions
