On June 25-27, 2019, CLDP organized a regional conference on mediation in Tunis, Tunisia, bringing together more than 110 participants from the justice sectors of Morocco, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Iraq, Kuwait, and Algeria. The conference focused on the use of mediation to resolve commercial disputes with sessions facilitated by subject-matter experts from the UN Commission on International Trade Law, the International Chamber of Commerce, JAMS Mediation, Arbitration and ADR Services, and current and former U.S. judges. Topics included the role of courts in encouraging mediation, the legal framework supporting mediation, enforcement of mediated settlements, mediation rules and practices, and standards for the conduct of mediators. Additionally, each delegation presented on recent developments in mediation in their countries: Tunisia, Saudi Arabia, and Bahrain are considering adopting new mediation statutes. CLDP hopes that this program will lead to increased recourse to mediation as a tool to resolve contractual disputes and ultimately contribute to a more attractive legal environment for cross-border business in the region.
