AMICABLE, a project co-funded by the European Commission, aims to create Best Practice Tools assisting with the enforceability of mediated agreements in the EU, and a Model for incorporating mediation into child abduction proceedings.
The Best Practice Tool is a sort of legal “roadmap” for judges, legal practitioners and mediators. It will consist of an EU general Best Practice Tool and four country-specific tools for Spain, Poland, Italy and Germany, respectively.
The Model is already operative in Germany, the UK and the Netherlands. The project’s goal is to facilitate the exchange of information and mutual learning and to explore how the model could be introduced in Spain, Poland and Italy.
The Project is led by MiKK, International Mediation Centre for Family Conflict and Child Abduction (Germany) in cooperation with the Universities of Milano-Biccocca (Italy), Wrocław (Poland) and Alicante (Spain).
