14.00 uur Using legislation to promote mediation: recipe for success of a slippery slope?

Barney Jordaan (Belgium)

A perennial and as yet unanswered question is why, if it is as beneficial and effective as it is claimed to be, has mediation globally not become the preferred method for resolving legal disputes? For those who believe in its real benefits, it is tempting to push for mediation to be made compulsory in one form or another, e.g., compelling attendance at but not necessarily participation in the process. What are the potential pitfalls? Does an opt-in system – such as in Belgium – provide a better solution? Or are there other possible solutions?

14.30 uur Compulsory and voluntary mediation in diverse prejudicial experiences in Argentina, Chile and Brasil

Juan Tausk (Argentinië)

Several Latin-American countries have opt-out systems of compulsory prejudicial mediation in various fields: labour, family,  business and penal mediation. Prof. Juan Tausk will explore the benefits that can be expanded, the pitfalls that may be avoided and the quality of the professional services delivered; considering the experiences of countries such as Argentina, Chile and Brasil.

15.00 uur Compulsory mediation in Italy: problems and opportunities

Luigi Cominelli (Italië)

The Italian mediation legislation produced a high number of mediation cases which can be seen as a very positive effect of it. However, there are also aspects of the Italian law to be identified which are potentially problematic.

How for example, compulsory mediation rules need to have a very clear relationship with jurisdiction from the beginning, to avoid confusion and opportunistic behavior. That would require clear guidelines from the judiciary which is at present unfortunately not the case in Italy.

Furthermore, in the long term, the Italian opt-out system will not be sustainable if it continues not to be financed by the state. Right now it is in fact based on “quasi-pro-bono” mediators (mediation fees are ridiculously low), and this is not an incentive for professionalizing mediators.

15.30 uur Pauze
16.00 uur De maatschappelijke voordelen van effectieve Nederlandse wetgeving

Fred Schonewille

Het primaire oogmerk van effectieve wetgeving op het terrein van mediation zou het creëren van maatschappelijke meerwaarde moeten zijn.
Deze opvatting roept de vragen op wat eigenlijk de maatschappelijke meerwaarde van mediation is en op welke wijze een effectieve mediationwet dan moet worden ingericht.
De beantwoording van beide vragen leidt tot enkele aanbevelingen ter verbetering van de Wet bevordering mediation.

16.30 uur Plenair debat
