Santiago, October 30, 2018

Twenty experts from various fields and organizations, including universities, government agencies and the Judicial Branch, attended the #JusticiaIntegral workshop series entitled “Thinking about the Incorporation of Collaborative Mechanisms in the Civil Justice of the Future.” The series is being organized by the Justice Studies Center of the Americas (JSCA), the Universidad Diego Portales (UDP) Law School, and the Universidad Alberto Hurtado (UAH) Law School with funding from Global Affairs Canada (GAC).

The purpose of the effort is to allow participants to discuss and analyze the premises, design and scope of the inclusion of various mechanisms that complement the judicial process –such as the integration of mediation as a dispute resolution channel- in the Civil Procedure Reform. Discussion of the reform will be reactivated in Congress over the next few months.
