Non-Parties in Mediation: Interpreters, Coaches, Experts etc.
Mediation is a collaborative process aimed at resolving disputes with the help of a neutral third party, the mediator. While the focus is typically on the disputing parties, the involvement or influence of non-parties can introduce several issues and considerations that require careful management. In this workshop we will deal with key issues concerning non-parties in a mediation – also taking into consideration specifics of international/intercultural cases.

Multi-Step Clauses for Dispute Resolution and AI
Multi-step dispute resolution clauses have become a popular addition to commercial contracts. They usually prescribe tiered procedures in the event of a dispute. By adding a step clause into a contract, parties write themselves into an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) protocol. The workshop deals with special aspects of multi-step clauses, benefits and obstacles while also highlighting the role Artificial Intelligence can play for multi-step clauses in particular and for ADR in general.

Shuttle-Mediation and Caucuses
Shuttle-mediation and caucuses are special forms of mediation. The mediator meets separately with every party or goes back and forth between parties who are in separate rooms, helping each identify their priorities and working toward a resolution. While caucusing is often considered an effective means when parties have difficulties discussing their issues with each other directly, there are also many mediators who find that this form of mediation corrupts the core principles of mediation – including neutrality and transparency. In our workshop we will focus on benefits and limitations of shuttle-mediation and caucuses in international/intercultural cases, discuss the inherent risks and share our experiences.
