Prof. S.I. Strong

Professor S.I. Strong recently traveled to New York to attend International Law Weekend, which is organized annually by the American Branch of the International Law Association. Professor Strong moderated a panel entitled “Beyond International Commercial Arbitration? The Promise of International Commercial Mediation,” which considered new developments in the area of international commercial mediation and conciliation. The discussion covered a variety of subjects including the proposed new international treaty on international commercial mediation and recent empirical research concerning the use and perception of international commercial mediation worldwide. Professor Strong’s paper from the event, “Clash of Cultures: How Different Epistemic Communities Threaten the Proposed UNCITRAL Convention on the International Enforcement of Mediated Settlement Agreements,” will be published in volume 22 of the ILSA Journal of International Law in 2016.
