Learning from the Practice of ADR Globally
This past year the International Mediation Institute launched the Global Pound Conference Series. Under this program, events will be held in at least 38 cities in 26 countries to learn and understand how dispute management and resolution is practices. The events will bring together stakeholders – users, providers, academics, and members of the judiciary. Deborah will describe the goals and objectives of the series and what it hopes to accomplish. In addition, Deborah will provide an update on the efforts at UNCITRAL [United Nations Commission on International Trade Law] to pass a Convention on the Enforcement of Mediation Settlements for commercial cross border disputes. The latest meeting of Working Group II was held in New York in February.
