    The focus of this study is on ethical dilemmas faced by mediation practitioners in Singapore. In this aspect, the writer attempts to first understand, and to have a clear grasp of the various types of ethical dilemmas in major fields of practice, both in commercial mediation and community mediation. This study also looks at how such dilemmas are handled by these practitioners, and where do they turn to for guidance and advice as they grapple with such dilemmas in their mediation practice. Also of interesting focus in this study is the aspect of key factors which influence or affect these ethical dilemmas. Related to this is the question of adequacy of ethical standards of practice and guidance to these practitioners, and the extent of the need for such standards in mediation practice in Singapore. Recommendations are offered on how to overcome this in their daily practice. It is also the intent of this study to allow mediation practitioners in Singapore to compare and contrast their ethical dilemmas faced by their counterparts outside of Singapore. The idea is to promote the sharing of best practices which would further enhance the overall standard of mediation practice, making it a more beneficial and effective alternative dispute resolution mechanism.
