Singapore and Fiji ratify the Singapore Convention!

Fiji and Singapore have been the first two states to ratify the historic UN ‘Singapore Convention’ on the Enforceability of Mediated Settlements. Six months after the third state has ratified the Convention, it will come into force.

So far, 52 states have signed the Convention, and we anticipate a third ratification in upcoming months. Read the UN news item here.

The Singapore Convention on Mediation provides countries with something which had not existed before: an effective mechanism to enforce international settlement agreements resulting from mediation. 

UN press release,

Congratulations to Singapore and Fiji on taking this momentous step!
