Mediation Settlement Enforcement Protocol Approved

Deborah Masucci, Chair of the International Mediation Institute, advises:

“Yesterday [25 June 2018],during the 51st Session of UNCITRAL, the final drafts were finalized for a Convention on the Enforcement of Mediation Settlements and a Model Law for the same.  The drafts are being referred to the Commission for adoption later this year. The Group also approved a resolution to name the Convention the “Singapore Mediation Convention” with a signing ceremony expected in Singapore in 2019.  This action concludes three years of vigorous debate and acknowledges the role of mediation for dispute settlement in cross border dispute resolution. ”

Congratulations to all whose diligence and persistence has led to this welcome outcome.
