Welcome and Presentation of the InMEDIATE Project (with Jonathan Barth and Verena Reinecke)

09.00 am – 09.45 am

InMEDIATE is a project funded by the European Union through the Erasmus Plus funding programme 2014-2020 and was developed by a partnership of 7 organizations from Germany, Italy and Poland. The aim of the project ist to establish a European vocational profile for an “International Mediator“. After 30 months the project is coming to a close in March 2023. As an outcome a training curriculum for mediation practitioners was designed, implemented and delivered providing a comprehensive set of certified qualifications, enabling trainees to act as international mediators in cross-border civil disputes. Our conference sets the final point for our project, presenting project results and especially introducing you to our Replicability Toolkit. This toolkit contains the curriculum, content and methods of the training course and will be publicly available.

Présentateur

Alice Canet est avocate et médiateure en matière familiale internationale. Pour elle, un conflit est une opportunité de réalisation de soi. Un panneau indicateur pour trouver le chemin de la paix avec les autres, et de la paix intérieure. Son objectif : Aider les familles internationales et franco-allemandes en particulier à transformer leur conflit en opportunité de paix. Je permets aux familles de réussir à créer leur paix en 3 étapes :

  1. État des lieux – clarification des questions, éléments de réponse juridiques et concrets - pour rendre la montagne de questions beaucoup plus simple et compréhensible
  2. Construction de l’accord - Organisation de l’échange avec les deux parents / ex pour créer avec eux les modalités de séparation qui leur conviennent avec les outils de la médiation
  3. Formalisation  - Rédaction d’acte / réalisation de la procédure pour donner force juridique à l’accord de mes clients

Passionnée de transmission de paix, elle est également formatrice à la médiation interculturelle lors de stages franco-allemands. Elle habite à Strasbourg, où elle vit avec son partenaire allemand et ses deux petites filles.

IMI continues to work with mediator credentialling institutions around the world to ensure and elevate quality in the field.

During this workshop, IMI’s Executive Director will, together with several prominent IMI Certified Mediators, shed light on how IMI Qualifying Assessment Programs are being delivered, discuss  advantages of being assessed as part of IMI Certification, as well as considerations to be made in international mediation practice.

Strategies for successfully navigating cultural differences in conflict management (with Olha Bershadska and Olesia Ivanenko)

Strategies for successfully navigating cultural differences in conflict management (with Olha Bershadska and Olesia Ivanenko)

10.00 am – 01.00 pm

Some teams use their diversity to foster creativity and market growth while other teams are stuck because of different approaches to planning, communication and problem solving. And this is even more relevant for international, remotely located and virtual teams. Confusing cultural norms might result in unpleasant, humiliating or even career-damaging situations.

This workshop explores the ways to communicate with people of various ages, worldviews, job preferences, genders, hobbies, learning preferences and cultural backgrounds. Participants will practice in recognizing their own styles as well as those of others, fostering understanding of cultural differences and fostering a sense of trust.

As a result, the participants will be able to see differences as a source of inspiration and development and get to know tools how to make use of this source.

02.00 pm - 05.00 pm

Quel rôle peut jouer la médiation ou la « médiation attitude » dans le rapprochement des individus de différentes cultures?
Que dois-je connaître et comprendre des autres cultures pour éviter les malentendus ou incompréhensions?

Cet atelier a pour objectif le partage de connaissances du contexte multiculturel dans lequel nous vivons aujourd’hui.
De multiples cadres de références se juxtaposent dans notre société et le « vivre ensemble » au quotidien en est impacté.
Il est important et urgent de réfléchir ensemble afin d’enrichir nos cultures de nos différences.

Cet atelier se veut participatif avec une partie de codéveloppement (apporter votre propre cas !) Durée 3h

Programme

  • Présentation des besoins fondamentaux universels et leur déclinaison dans différentes « valeurs culturelles » …

Towards demand-driven dispute resolution: what do people think of different dispute resolution methods and which do they use? Insights from an empirical study and field experience in Belgium so providers can better meet needs (D. Nigmatullina & J. Seel)

Towards demand-driven dispute resolution: what do people think of different dispute resolution methods and which do they use? Insights from an empirical study and field experience in Belgium so providers can better meet needs (D. Nigmatullina & J. Seel)

02.00 pm - 05.00 pm

The workshop will help conflict resolution professionals understand the needs of people in conflict, and provide tools to meet them.

In the first part, we will present and discuss the key results of a survey on dispute resolution culture in Belgium that a team of researchers from the Faculty of Law of the University of Antwerp and Conflicool conducted in September 2022.  The survey involved two thousand Belgian residents and collected data on their perception of and experience with various ways of handling disputes. Particular attention in the survey was paid to mediation and ODR.
 
In the second part, the learnings from 500 meetings with parties in conflict using a multi door courthouse approach will be shared. Focus will be on how more mediations can be generated ad how technology can be used to help citizens at scale.

Comparative insights regarding transnational mediators and national mediators (with Laura Ristori, Laura Capacci and Simona Viciani)

Comparative insights regarding transnational mediators and national mediators (with Laura Ristori, Laura Capacci and Simona Viciani)

02.00 pm - 05.00 pm

Courts, legislators and lawyers still approach transnational cases in the same fashion as purely domestic ones, adjusting the concepts of domestic law where they believe it necessary. This approach was significant for the transnational issues setting. The same problem emerges with regard to mediation applied to transnational cases. This workshop focusses on the issues and the adequate approach to transnational litigation.
