[Webinar] Hague Convention Mediation: Expecting the Unexpected


The Hague Convention is a multilateral treaty, which seeks to protect children from the harmful effects of abduction and retention across international boundaries by providing an expeditious method to bring about their prompt return. The Convention seeks to ensure that any child abducted from one member country to another member country is promptly returned to the child’s country of residence unless exceptional
circumstances apply.

Join us as we speak to two leaders in the field of the Hague Convention mediation in discussing their experiences on common areas and unusual scenarios such as where parties are desperate to settle and how do they trust one another again.

This webinar will also explore a speaker’s Pre Hague mediation with MiKK and two case studies:

Case Study 1: Post Hague mediation by Susan Tay
This case study will be on Susan’s mediation with THAC. It involves a mediation that happened almost a year after the Hague outcome and the child was finally returned to the left behind parent. This mediation was unusual as it involves the two parents who were not married and the partner of the mother.

Case Study 2: Online mediation of a parental abduction case by Susan Tay and Christian von Baumbach
This case study will be on a mediation with MiKK where Susan and Christian co-mediated. Both speakers will be sharing their tools learnt at MiKK and how these tools were used effectively during the online mediation.
