Invitation to apply for the European Mediation Training for Practitioners of Justice 2017

On 14 - 25 August 2017, Association for International Arbitration (AIA) is hosting its eighth European Mediation Training for Practitioners of Justice (EMTPJ) in Brussels, Belgium.

The EMTPJ is an 11-day intensive training course on cross-border mediation in civil and commercial matters. The training is unique because it is tailored to cover both theoretical and practical elements of mediation from the European perspective. Establishing such a training represented an important milestone for mediation, as it allows participants to apply for accreditation in many jurisdictions (including in Belgium by the Belgian Federal Mediation Commission), thereby creating truly 'European Mediators'.

Do not miss the application  deadline: 1st of July 2017.

Apply before 30 April 2017 to take advantage of an Early Bird Rate of 25% off! In addition, at all times, AIA members benefit from 500 EUR tuition fee reduction.

How to become an international mediator

When parties select a mediator for conflicts with cross-border dimensions, the mediator should be accredited/recognized in all affected jurisdictions. Indeed, national jurisdictions may e.g. provide that the mediated settlement cannot be homologated in the local jurisdiction unless the mediator is considered as an accredited/recognized mediator in the meaning of domestic law (and practices).
It was in this context that the European Commission decided to support the launch of the so-called EMTPJ project in 2010. EMTPJ is an intensive mediation training program under which international facilitative mediation standards and techniques are trained to future cross-border mediators.

The European Mediation Training for Practitioners of Justice (EMTPJ)

The EMTPJ project was created in 2010 by the Association for International Arbitration (AIA) IVZW, with support from the European Commission. Its aim is to train cross border (facilitative) mediators to resolve civil and commercial conflicts. The training is unique in the sense that it comprises various conditions for mediator accreditation applicable in different jurisdictions (both public and private accreditation conditions). In such way, the EMTPJ mediation training adds to the free movement of mediators within Europe and even beyond.
The training consists of 100 training hours, including mediation role games.
