Title: 2nd meeting of WG 2 Resolution of cross-border family conflicts
Activity:Working group meetings
Start Date:15/12/2008
End Date:16/12/2008

The 2nd meeting of the Working Group 2 "Resolution of cross-border family conflicts" took place in Slovenia on 15-16 December 2008.

During this second meeting devoted to the “Alternative dispute resolution in cross-border family conflicts. International comparative analysis on this topic regarding the quality of mediation schemes”, we were able to share the international experts’ opinion and the participants’ approach on this topic from their own perspective and respective competences. Through an in-depth and detailed discussion, we could get a picture of the current situation related to the topics under discussion, among others the practical and specific problems related to the culture of mediation, the institutions supporting mediation, the legal framework for mediation in the MEDA countries, etc. In this way, we could identify the priorities and needs to be addressed through training activities and study visits. We could also define how to better focus the seminars on this component and what are the major issues and the elements to be taken into account in order to reach the objectives of this project. We also discussed the expected results related to this topic as well as the dates and venues of the activities. In addition, some recommendations on this topic were adopted and we started a debate on the final document to be delivered by the working group: the text of the Conclusions. 

The recommendations formulated during the 4 meetings of this Working Group will be presented during the regional Conference that will take place at the end of the Working Groups meetings in 2009.
