Successful Mediation by Stockholm in Paris
20 February 2013

The Stockholm University Mediation Team was among the 16 best teams at the finals of the 8th annual ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition, held in Paris on 8-13 February 2013.

The Competition selected sixty-six teams from 29 different countries to participate in the Competition. The Competition requires students to put their negotiating and problem-solving skills to the test, trying to resolve complex international business problems by mediation.

After four days of intense mediation sessions, the sixteen teams with the highest scores moved forward to the final rounds, which took place over two days of elimination rounds. Based on its scores in the preliminary rounds, the Stockholm University team advanced to the Eighth-Finals, where it lost to Auckland University (New Zealand), who won the second place prize. The first place prize was won by Jagiellonian University (Poland).

The Stockholm team consisted of three students from the Master of International Commercial Arbitration Law program: Anatolii Doludenko (Ukraine), Stefania Paval (Romania), and Yijin Wang (China). The team was coached by Haymanot Baheru, who was a member of the team last year. The team was sponsored by and received coaching also from Eric Runesson and Christer Holm of Sandart & Partners, as well as Celeste E. Salinas Quero, SCC associate counsel and visiting lecturer at Stockholm University assisted the team.
