Event description
David Bryson and Michael Mitchell will draw on their significant experience to discuss issues when conciliating in a statutory context.

About this Event

What are the distinctive characteristics of conciliators (compared to mediators)? Where do the lines between them meet and depart? What are the dilemmas conciliators face in their efforts to meet the interests of parties in dispute and the objectives of the law in which they are conciliating? What makes for a great conciliator? Dispute resolution practitioners who practise within a statutory context (conciliators) are a significant component of Australian ADR. ADRAC has made conciliation its current research interest and reported on their finding at the recent National Mediation Conference in Canberra. There is interest in how conciliators receive appropriate recognition for their work and whether conciliation has reached a stage when it should become a distinctive profession. There is also interest in the selection and professional development of the conciliator. The talk will cover the above topics and explore what is next for conciliation. David and Michael have conducted training workshops throughout Australasia for conciliators, court registrars and internal complaint dispute resolvers for many years and have been conciliators themselves. David authored the "Mapping Paper" for ADRAC on Conciliation in Australia (www.adrac.org.au/conciliation).
