UNCITRAL’s Working Group II Concludes Work on Instrument for Enforcement of Mediation Settlements

UNCITRAL’s Working Group II concluded work on instruments to enforce cross border mediation settlements at its meeting on February 5-9, 2018 with a draft Convention and Model Law. The documents will be considered for finalization at its meeting in June 2018 in New York City when UNCITRAL will also be celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the New York Convention. To keep apprised of the latest drafts go to: http://www.uncitral.org/uncitral/en/commission/working_groups/2Arbitration.html
Adoption of a Convention or Model Law will support greater use of mediation for cross-border disputes by removing barriers to its consideration. Efforts after June will be focused on securing state approval of either a Convention or Model Law. Education efforts will be focused on the benefits of mediation as one of many choices to resolve disputes efficiently and effectively while ensuring access to justice.
