El Foro Mundial de Centros de Mediacion : 31° emision del Foro en Francfort.
Antonio M. Prida, mediator (MEXICO), who regularly participates to the UIA world Forum of mediation centers, summarizes in his article, below, the 31st edition which Fabienne van der Vleugel and Ross Stoddard, co-presidents of the Forum, have organized in Frankfurt in June 2023.
The CCI Seine-et-Marne supports the 31st UIA World FORUM of Mediation Centers organized in Frankfurt.
This year, the CCI Seine-et-Marne has decided to support the 31st UIA Forum, organized and co-chaired by Fabienne van der Vleugel (VDV AVOCATS, Serris) and Ross Stoddard (US, Texas).
The UIA Forum took place on June 30 and July 1, 2023 in FRANKFURT, in the prestigious rooms made available by the IHK Chamber of Commerce, bringing together almost 80 participants from 22 different countries: Australia, China, India, US, UK , Lebanon, Ukraine, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium, Poland…
The UIA Forum was also sponsored by the national committee and the committee 77 of French Foreign Trade Advisors of France, which further justifies the desire of the CCI Seine-et-Marne to support this international event with local roots.
The UIA Forum was also supported by EQUANIM INTERNATIONAL, Val d'Europe Agglomeration (Fields of Opportunities), IMI, Lexis Nexis, AMIDIF, and the law firms DITGES and VDV AVOCATS.
The event was a real success and will remain forever etched in the memories of all participants.
The scientific program allowed the most beautiful anticipations. The sessions were even richer in lessons and sharing than expected.
Mediation is, in itself, a performance tool contributing to the good management of companies.
This truth has been regularly highlighted by testimonials from professionals and entrepreneurs during previous UIA FORUMs, notably in Luxembourg (in 2016) in Singapore (in 2017) and in Zurich (in 2019), and on the territory of the Val d'Europe with the intervention of DEFTA, EOZ and TOTAL in 2018.
The experience acquired in recent years, and the results show that mediation is certainly a way that has its place in the management of international trade disputes, and that it is no longer really just an "alternative" mode.
It is therefore remarkable to have noted, in France, the official launch of the amicable policy and the creation of the National Committee for Mediation.
Since its creation in 2007, VDV AVOCATS has been making efforts to raise awareness among business leaders of the characteristics and advantages of judicial mediation and ad hoc mediation, for intra- and inter-company disputes. Fabienne van der Vleugel is accredited mediator in France, Luxembourg, Belgium and UK.
