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.
EMPTJ trainings take place once per year, during 11 consecutive days (100 hours) and are attended by legal practitioners from all over the world. Past trainings received excellent feedback and have contributed to shaping international mediation standards and practices.
Accreditation/recognition declarations for EMTPJ 2016 are currently being obtained from national mediation providers and authorities. The following mediation providers already declared to recognize the EMTPJ training, meaning that successful participants may receive work from them:
- Belgium - CEDIRES

The organizer expects to receive many more declarations from other jurisdictions in the coming days and will communicate an update.
However, as EMTPJ 2016 is approaching and places are limited, don’t miss out on this opportunity. (Only a few places are still available and will be allocated on a first-come-first served basis)
Moreover, it may be interesting for you to know that there is an increased awareness of the importance of proper training for the peaceful settlement of international disputes, reason why also several diplomats have expressed an interest in joining EMTPJ 2016. (The organizer may therefore amend some exercises, adding a diplomatic dimension to commercial/economic conflicts).
