Prof. S.I. Strong

Professor S.I. Strong recently conducted a large-scale empirical study on the use and perception of international commercial mediation and conciliation that appears to be the first of its kind. The information was gathered to assist the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) as it considers a proposal from the Government of the United States regarding a possible convention in this area of law. Professor Strong’s preliminary report on the research was cited in documents circulated by the UNCITRAL Secretariat in advance of upcoming deliberations.

The study collected detailed data on 34 different questions from 221 respondents from all over the world. Survey participants included private practitioners, neutrals, in-house counsel, government lawyers, academics and judges with expertise in both domestic and international proceedings. The results described in the preliminary report will soon be published in an article presenting an expanded final analysis of the underlying data.
