For one more week only you have the chance to have your say on the enforcement of cross-border mediated settlement agreements. I encourage each and every one of you to offer your input.

Two surveys will be gathering input from dispute resolution professionals and others on the challenge of enforcing settlement agreements across borders.

The surveys are intended to provide empirical data to aid the decision making process for the proposed UNCITRAL settlement convention on the international enforcement of settlements reached in mediation.

IMI Survey of Corporate Needs

The first survey is just four questions, and is from the International Mediation Institute. It is focused on the level of corporate demand for such a convention.

The results of the IMI survey will be discussed and developed further at the October 29, 2014 convention in London on Shaping International Dispute Resolution.

University of Missouri Survey of Dispute Stakeholders

The second is somewhat more comprehensive, and is from the University of Missouri. The Missouri survey is aimed at gathering information about enforcement difficulties from all stakeholders.

The Missouri survey covers a variety of issues that may be of interest to the international community.

Your Input Requested

Your opinion counts. Remember there is only one week left, so please take the time to make a difference.

You do not need to have previously participated in an international commercial mediation or conciliation in order to be able to respond.
