This study describes systematically the process and the mechanisms utilized by the traditional mediators in Northern Albania both described by the Kanun and in practice. It will try to answer the following questions related to the practice of mediation in Northern Albania: Why do people resort to traditional mediators in blood feuds? What are their role in the process of mediation and forgiveness? What norms or values do they use to influence the parties to reach an agreement? Do they resort to Kanuns or follow more of a formal procedure that is similar to the one followed by the Western mediators in the mediation process?
