Mediation in Muslim Contexts

In cases of international child abduction to non-Hague countries, mediation can provide the only possibility for parents to reach a solution on the living and other arrangements of their child.

On 17th and 18th June 2017, MiKK convened an experts’ meeting of 32 mediators, lawyers and psychologists with knowledge of Arabic, Farsi and Turkish culture and language skills in Berlin. This meeting was kindly supported by the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJV). There was a lively and fruitful exchange of information and mediation practices in a number of countries were discussed.

MiKK is now preparing for the next phase of the project – the provision of advanced training in cross-border family mediation to the group of experts.
