The Forum of Mediation Centres was created in 2001 by the Mediation and Conflict Prevention 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 Athens will be the 15th since the creation of the Forum.
As mediation is now thriving in a number of countries either under the influence of the European Directive or because it is finally recognised as the best instrument to settle international business disputes, we have decided at this next Forum to discuss the issues which are at the very heart of mediation development such as the Directive, cultural differences, mediation skills, etc.
On the other hand, mediation should be flexible enough to be able to face the problems, which companies encounter on a day to day basis and mediation is being increasingly used to prevent or resolve internal disputes within companies and help face the difficulties created by the global financial crisis.
Once again the Forum will be at the forefront of the latest thinking in mediation and ADR. This is an event you cannot afford to miss!
