Georgian Judges Learn Mediation

08 December 2021 Georgian Judges Learn Mediation

On December 4-5, at Crowne Plaza Hotel Borjomi, USAID/PROLoG, in cooperation with the High School of Justice (HSOJ), trained 14 judges on referral of cases to mediation and enforcement of mediated settlement agreements.  The judges came from the Tbilisi City and Appellate Courts, the Rustavi City Court, and the Mtskheta, Bolnisi and Akhaltsikhe District Courts.  PROLoG expert Sophie Tkemaladze and Supreme Court Justice Alex Tsuladze delivered the training. They covered both theoretical and practical aspects of mediation. Topics included the main principles and stages of mediation; the differences in settlement in courts versus through mediation; the criteria for referring cases to mediation; mediation’s legal framework; enforcement of mediated settlement agreements; and the importance of the Singapore Convention. The training was highly interactive, involving role-play, games, and facilitated discussion. The program was originally developed by PROLoG two years with international expert, Ales Zalar, and Georgian expert, Sophie Tkemaladze.
