Ms Joubin-Bret refers to the helpfulness of an IMI-administered survey in informing development of the #SingaporeConvention. #mediation

We have just launched the IMI Biennial #Survey:
Mr Rimsky Yuen, SC, describes the #SingaporeConvention as a human milestone in dispute resolution. #mediation #ADR @SingaporeConv
"Mediation legislation is one potential impact" of the Singapore Convention - Mr Rimsky Yuen SC

"Mediation is going to be highly-regarded in the Belt and Road Initiative", especially given the number of diverging legal cultures and systems involved. - Mr Rimsky Yuen, SC.

"Judges are going to be the gatekeepers for implementation of the Convention. If we are to have consistency, and...harmonisation, judges should be talking to each other...There should be a dialogue platform so that judges can exchange views on implementation of the Convention."RY
ABY - "Online dispute resolution is yet another animal." "I'm not completely sure, given the importance of the mediator and the[ir] role... and the way the mediator lives and builds on trust ... whether we're talking about exactly the same thing with ODR" #odr #mediation
ABY: An exception to enforcing the #SingaporeConvention is "when the mediation has not been carried out as it should have been". Points to the "role of the mediator" as vital.

Important to embed mediation standards and code of conduct?
ABY: The model law being published alongside the #SingaporeConvention does talk about the #mediation process.

Nadja: There are no requirements as to who may and may not mediate?

ABY: No, with a view to party flexibility and autonomy, there is no mandatory requirement or qualification for the mediator.

RY: Trial is the most lucrative part of a litigator's work. Mediation requires change of mindset in people's work and culture.

"To promote mediation, we need to persuade [parties] that mediators are qualified with the proper expertise, and available to handle disputes quickly - even quicker than arbitration." Mediation is another option. - Mr Rimsky Yuen SC
