From July 4 to July 7, 2012, the third international Conference of Judicial Mediation was held in Aix-en-Provence, in the Faculty of Law, under the auspices of The Honourable Christiane Taubira, Minister of Justice and Responsible for Judicial documents.
This conference was organized by the French section of the European Association of Magistrates for Mediation (Gemme-France), together with the International Conference of Mediation for Justice (CIMJ-ICMJ), and by Aix-Mediation.
Mediation began, at the same time historically, in the judicial systems of countries on five (5) continents. Some countries, such as Argentina or Italy, have rendered mediation obligatory before a case is referred to the courts.
To take cognizance of their work, international experts chose to meet in Aix-en-Provence. About 200 participants representing 17 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, North America and South America discussed effective practices in the field of mediation. Roundtables and advanced workshops were organized.
Emphasis was placed on conciliation and mediation in employment tribunals. Employers, unions and employees met with judges in an attempt to improve conciliation practices. Given the profitability of the discussions, the participants decided to meet in Paris, in November or December 2012 to resume their discussions.
Another highlight of the Conference concerned administrative and penal mediation. It was decided that administration mediation would be an important subject to be included in our exchanges in 2013.
In short, the success of the Conference exceeded all our expectations and the participants decided to meet again next year, during the first week of July 2013, for the fourth international meeting.
