Prof Joel Lee, Chairman of the Singapore International Mediation Institute, will moderate MANE panel 4: "Towards a uniform mediation practice code".
Panellists: Mr Iu Ting-Kwok and Ms Ana Maria Maia Goncalves of ICFML (an IMI Qualifying Assessment Program)
Iu Ting-Kwok: "Do we need to do something more to strengthen the #SingaporeConvention, to make it work better?" Points to Art 5 items 1e and 1f. Tl;dr is that deficient mediator = decision not upheld. So how do we ensure that we use GOOD mediators? Answer = mediator standards.
ITK: What standards are applicable to the mediator/#mediation? Local standards? International standards?What is an objective test?
What are the mediator standards where settlement is cross-border? Do we need international mediator #standards? (IMI answers 'YES'.)

MANE Forum Session 3: Online dispute resolution for cross-border mediation

'Mediation: A New Era'

#mediation #debate #conference #panel
Eunice Chen: ODR can use synchronous (same-time) and asynchronous methods.

It's better to mediate online than to not meet at all = ODR good from an access-to-justice point of view.

ODR is useful when parties may need to be separated - e.g. domestic violence situations.
Asha Hemrajani - ODR = "improving access to justice". Online dispute resolution removes barriers with costs, time, geography. No need to travel, no need to pay for a lawyer for extensive periods of time.

Thread: Philosophers have been obsessing over multi-path causes for over 40 years, but without @yudapearl's non-parametric #mediation techniques they have been unable to provide an account of #path-specific effects. Why not?

academic.oup.com/bjps/article/7…
First, both philosophers and social scientists have focused on linear non-additive causal models. But in these models direct and indirect effects have properties that don't generalize to other cases.
In linear models, the total effect is the sum of the direct and indirect effect. One gets the direct effect by conditioning on the mediator, and the value at which you condition on the mediator doesn't matter. The indirect effect is the total effect minus the direct effect.

#OSHO

Don’t #accumulate anything whatever: #power, #money, #prestige, #virtue, #knowledge, even the so-called #spiritual experiences. Don’t accumulate.

It doesn’t mean become a #beggar or #renounce the world. Be in the #world, but don’t be of the world.
If you don’t accumulate you are ready to #die any moment because you have nothing to #lose. The #mediation is living #death.

Don’t accumulate inside, be poor in #spirit. Never #possess anything and then you are ready to #die.
The more you #possess, the more you are afraid to lose. If you don’t possess anything, if your #purity, if your #spirit is uncontaminated by anything, if you are simply there #alone, you can disappear any moment; whenever #death knocks on the door it will find you ready.
