Due to this, a prominent Italian scholar prof. Elizabetta Silvestri has created a special course “Mediation for foreigners. Introduction in mediation” to share the knowledge and practice with colleagues from the leading East European law schools, in particular, from Ukraine (Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and Yaroslaw the Wize National Law University) and from Poland (Jaigellonian University and University of Gdansk).

This course has taken place on April 08-11, 2019 in University of Pavia. The following topics were discussed: 1) The European landscape of mediation and ADR; 2) Models and Basic principles of mediation; 3) Cross cultural dispute resolution; 4) The mediation proceeding, Stages and the agreement. In particular, the main focus of studying was on unique Italian experience in mandatory mediation and on sharing of the European best practices in ADR.
