The most comprehensive overview of this effort has been published by Zartman together with Avaro DeSoto in “Timing Mediation Initiatives” (cf. Zartman/DeSoto 2010). Zartman and DeSoto developed a toolkit providing potential mediators with a checklist for the identification of ripeness. They suggest to take five steps to analyze a situation on whether ripeness exists, which consist of assessing the existence and the perception of a stalemate, assessing the existence and perception of a way out, inducing recognition of the stalemate and a way out, ripening the stalemate and a way out, and finally positioning oneself 52 as a future mediator.
