My proposal for an EU Community Family Justice model, that was an outcome of my international family law workshop in March at W.I.T., funded by the Irish Research Council has been nominated for an Innovating Justice award by the Hague Institute. There are 41 entries from around the world and this is the only Irish nominated entry. The three proposals that secure the greatest amount of votes go on to be considered by a closed jury. My proposal is for an overarching family justice model, that puts mediation centre stage, to be used in the same way by all Member States, the research centre would be based at W.I.T. in Waterford if we can get the funding. The first part of the voting process, which is worldwide, is essentially a public vote, so I need every vote I can get!
Voting is now open and ends on October 8th at 1 p.m.. Voting has now been simplified, go to
register, log in and vote.
