The CMA is pleased to announce the new Mediation Workshop in Art and Cultural Heritage taking place in in New York City, in January 2013. This Workshop was developed by the International Council of Museums (ICOM) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Arbitration and Mediation Center and will be offered in co-operation with the CMA.

This Workshop will provide mediation training in art and cultural heritage disputes and focuses on the appropriate tools and techniques of mediation, emphasizing effective communication and increased understanding. The Workshop will include a general presentation of the ICOM-WIPO Mediation process, as well as simulated mediation exercises.

Conducted by Mr. Jon Lang (London UK) and Mr. Lawrence M.
