MfN Masterclass lunchbreak cross-border mediation

Cross-border mediation is often carried out in the English language and this Masterclass is organized together with an experienced cross-border mediator from Greece. Although the seminar will be taught in the English language you can ask questions in Dutch. The added value is that while following a seminar on cross-border mediation you can also pick-up on English mediation-jargon.  


What will you learn when you join us for this lunchtime-break Masterclass?

  • The class starts with a lecture | presentation showing the variegated mediation landscape in Europe. What are the mediation practices and the main legislative frameworks to take in account when mediating in different countries? What can we learn from that?
  • Next we will in particularly deal with a new development that we see emerging in various countries: a compulsory pre-litigation information meeting under the guidance of a mediator, as already implemented in Italy and Greece..
  • Finally a case study of a mediation between a Dutch, Italian and Austrian company will be discussed and illustrated with practical tips.

When you register as a participant, please download here and read the article from ‘Tijdschrift voor Ondernemingsrecht Kluwer 2016/11 Afl. 1’ describing a cross-border mediation between a Dutch, Austrian and Italian Company. In order to benefit fully from the seminar the article is provided in Dutch as well as the English translation.



To get an overview and gain knowledge on important aspects of cross-border mediation and understanding the broad variations on how mediation is applied in practice as well as the general legislative frameworks in various countries in the EU. Tips on how to initiate a cross-border mediation.
