“For the past 20 years, your association has been working at both the national and European levels to promote amicable settlement, particularly in the context of the work of the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice. GEMME is now a key player in this field, recognised for its expertise and regularly consulted by national and international institutions.” - Éric Dupond Moretti, Keeper of the Seals, Minister for Justice, France.


Mediation across the five continents: Dream or reality? GEMME, 20 years on!

The two days of the conference in Strasbourg (25 and 26 May 2023) were an opportunity to celebrate an important anniversary: 20 years of GEMME! 20 years of activism to develop mediation and amicable dispute resolution. Some of the founders were present: Guy Canivet, Béatrice Brenneur and Éric Battistoni. Speakers and participants from all over Europe came together to reflect on the achievements, projects and future prospects of GEMME, an association with over 300 members in France. It was an important occasion. Mr Dupond-Moretti, Keeper of the Seals, Minister of Justice in France, opened the proceedings, confirming by his presence his desire to develop a culture of amicable settlement at the heart of French courts. For many, a revolution! He outlined two flagship projects of his amicable settlement policy - the trial break and the amicable settlement hearing and encouraged everyone to persevere in their efforts: ”Let's roll up our sleeves and get moving! The amicable settlement policy is here and now, with you!”
