Course Description

The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law’s (UNCITRAL) Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation is also known as the “Singapore Convention on Mediation” or “Singapore Convention”. This international treaty represents a significant milestone in the development of international mediation by providing a regulatory foundation for the use of mediation in cross-border disputes. With four-six countries signing the instrument at the signing ceremony and covering over one-third of the world’s population, the Singapore Convention helps to facilitate international trade and commerce on a global scale.
