Challenges Against the Myth of the Singapore Convention on Mediation,

  • Hikari Saito (Speaker)

Activity: Disseminating Research Presentation


I was selected as a speaker of one of Speed Share session for the virtual conference, 2021 Dispute Resolution Spring Conference by the American Bar Association. I am going to present 10 minutes presentation.


The Singapore Convention on Mediation is regarded as promising for the future of commercial mediation. The presentation aims to promote awareness of three vital shortcomings of the Convention likely to prevent its success: lack of understanding of reciprocity, misunderstanding of enforcement issues, and lack of effective safeguards to secure the authenticity of mediated settlement agreements (MSAs).
