More than 100 leading experts and practitioners of mediation from around the globe are now in Georgia to attend a two-day international conference ‘Mediation Days 2018’ that kicked off in Tbilisi today.

The conference focuses on alternative mechanisms of dispute resolution and ongoing reforms in the justice system of Georgia

EU and Georgia agreed to enhance the use of mediation. Through our projects, we support developing fair, high-quality and efficient mediation, as a real alternative for citizens to solve their disputes in an amicable, swift and win-win way”, said Peter Danis, Justice Programme Manager at the Delegation of the European Union to Georgia.

Tbilisi Mediation Days 2018 formed a platform for debate on civic mediation as well as the cases deriving from the criminal law. Panel discussions focused on gender in mediation, specifics of collective lawsuits related to the labour code and the perspectives of bringing mediation into employment disputes in the public service.
