Course Aims:

This two-part podcast series with Denise Carter OBE, Head of Mediation Services at the International Family Law Group discusses the growing use of mediation in international parental child abduction cases and the important role it can play in resolving high-conflict family cases. Part One explains how mediation can work alongside return proceedings under the 1980 Hague Convention, and also the part mediation can play in cases involving abduction to non Hague Convention countries.

Part Two considers how international child abduction mediation works from a practical perspective. It also considers the voice of the child in the mediation process, the main barriers for a mediator when mediating these types of cases, the impact of mediation on high conflict cases, a consideration of the use of mediation by other Hague Convention States and the potential impact of the 1996 Hague Convention.
