11th World Forum of Mediation Centres

from April 11 to 12, 2008 in Milan, Italy

  1. 1Presentation

The Forum of Mediation Centres was created in 2001 by the Mediation Commission of the UIA. It brings together the most important commercial mediation and ADR centres from around the world and offers an occasion to exchange views on the development of ADR and best practices. It is also an occasion for centres to collaborate on specific programmes.


The meeting in Milan will be the 11th since the creation of the Forum. Since the creation of the Forum, important changes have happened in the market of conflict prevention and resolution.

 

This meeting is particularly dedicated to following these new trends. Med arb is a promising but difficult dispute resolution procedure.  It is obviously needed but few practitioners and centres actually use it.  We will discuss this procedure and see if and how we can make it successful.

 

Dispute prevention and the maintenance of ongoing relationships is an area of growing importance for the parties.  The Forum will look at ways to provide efficient services to prevent conflict in contracts and discuss the possibility for centres to enter this activity.

 

The intervention of an Ombudsman is also one of the ways to manage possible disputes and resolve existing ones.  Obviously Ombudsmen and mediators have a lot in common.  With the participation of the International Ombudsmen Association we shall explore this important field.

 

The UIA World Forum of Mediation Centres wants you to remain at the forefront of conflict prevention and resolution. This meeting is to help you to do so.
