NORDPLUS intensive courses in mediation take place at Turiba University (23)
NORDPLUS intensive courses - "Mediation - civil and criminal law cases" take place at Turiba University from 18th July till 29th July, which are organized by Turiba University(Latvia), Mykolas Romeris University (Lithuania), Tallinn University of Technology (Estonia) and Turku Economics and business Administration School (Finland).
Dana Rone, the Attorney at Law, Mediator and lecturer at Turiba University, says: “During the proceedings, mediation becomes more popular because judges recommend that parties themselves should try to resolve disputes in a mutually acceptable manner. Mediators have skills to promote parties' negotiations and to move towards a solution out of court. Popularity of mediation also means that members of the society are willing to take responsibility for their own issues without waiting for third parties, including judicial intervention. Mediation is both for courts and arbitrations an alternative dispute resolution type that relieves pressure from national courts, as well as the method by which the parties reach a settlement of disputes and as far as possible keep a respectful relationship.”
The main aims of intensive courses:
- To bring together students and academic forces from several countries to create an international network of professionals who are interested in mediation possibilities and application of that;
- To provide the opportunity to students to learn in a multicultural environment, developing their communication skills and ability to work in a team;
- To organize theoretical lectures, as well as creative sessions with role-playing games, and the opportunity to meet with professional mediators.
In the courses take part Bachelor's and Master's study program’s students from Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Finnland.
The project is implemented with Nordplus higher education program’s support. Project No. NPHE-2016-10071.
