Conciliation procedures are one of the obvious and most iconic trends of the modern civilizational
process. In Russia, a new round of their development was given by the Federal Law of
28 November 2018 No. 451-FZ (as amended by the Federal Law of 26 July 2019 No. 197-FZ).
The Resolution of the Plenum of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation of 31 October
2019 No. 41 approved the Rules of Judicial Conciliation. However, after two years, accompanied
by active scientific discussions, no unity of views on the existing – or desirable – concept
of conciliation procedures in general and their individual types has been developed. One
of the reasons is the difference in values and understanding of conciliation – as a factual goal
or as a way of achieving a legal goal. According to the author of the article, such “opposition”
is artificial and removable by legal means. We argue the thesis that the legislative concept of
conciliation procedures, judicial, non-procedural and non-judicial, and its realization must
correlate with the type of process and historically developed methodology of civil procedure.
The author formulates and analyzes the problems of hermeneutics of “conciliation”, the understanding
and purpose of the reconciliation procedures provided by law, judicial conciliation
as an emerging delegated conciliation procedure, legal qualification of the results of non-judicial
conciliation procedure. It is argued that the universum of procedure as a legal tool has
an inexhaustible potential in the horizontal harmonization of civil procedure.

Keywords: civil procedure; conciliation; conciliation procedures; judicial conciliation;
delegated conciliation procedure.
