Abstract

On 26 June 2018, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) approved, largely without modification, the final drafts of the Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation (the Singapore Convention) and amendments to the Model Law on International Commercial Mediation prepared by Working Group II. These instruments aim to promote the enforceability of international commercial settlement agreements reached through mediation in the same way that the New York Convention facilitates the recognition and enforcement of international arbitration awards. This paper provides a critical analysis of the Singapore Convention and some commentary from an Asian perspective.

Keywords: Uncitral, Mediation, Arbitration, Singapore Convention on Mediation
