Professor Strong Presents Paper in New York

Professor S.I. Strong recently attended a conference at Cardozo Law School in New York dedicated to the development of new Singapore Convention on Mediated Settlements. Professor Strong’s presentation, “The Role of Empirical Research and Dispute System Design in Developing International Treaties:  A Case Study of the Singapore Convention on Mediation,” outlines how Professor Strong suggested the idea for a convention in this area of law to the U.S. Department of State back in February 2014 as part of her work with the State Department’s Advisory Council on Private International Law and how she contributed to the development of the treaty through her work as a non-governmental observer (NGO) with the United Nations. An article based on her presentation will be published in the Cardozo Journal of Conflict Resolution.
