AMICABLE (EC co-funded)

The AMICABLE Project was initated by MiKK 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, in cooperation with the Universidad de AlicanteUniversita’ di Milano-Bicocca and the Uniwersytet Wrocławski.

The AMICABLE project aimed to provide assistance for the cross-border recognition and enforceability of mediated family agreements in the EU. It also wanted to promote a tried-and-tested model for incorporating mediation into international child abduction proceedings in the EU. It is hoped that the results of the AMICABLE project will thus help to promote mediation in cross-border family disputes within the EU. Full project information can be found on the AMICABLE website: www.amicable-eu.org

The AMICABLE project’s specific two objectives are:

⭐     The creation of a legal “roadmap” in form of a Best Practice Tool for judges, legal practitioners and mediators which will assist parents with the cross-border enforceability and recognition of mediated family agreements. An EU general Best Practice Tool as well as four country-specific tools for Spain, Poland, Italy and Germany have been developed in the course of this project (in EN and the relevant national language).

⭐     The introduction of a Best Practice Model for incorporating mediation, inititated by the judge, into the tight six-week timeframe of child abduction proceedings under the 1980 Hague Child Abduction Convention. Such a model is already operative in Germany, the UK and in the Netherlands. The project’s objective is to facilitate the exchange of information and mutual learning and to explore how the model could be introduced in Spain, Poland and in Italy.

Best Practice Tools
The Best Practice Tools created by the participating countries, as well as the EU-wide tool are now available to download at www.amicable-eu.org.

National Seminars & Final Conference
Part of the project were 3 national seminars held in Italy, Spain and Poland in 2021. The final project conference took place ONLINE (due to Covid restrictions), on the 11 – 12 June 2021. All details and the programmes can be found at www.amicable-eu.org.
