This week, Stig will take part in a panel at the annual real estate fair Provada. Stig will present their views on mediation as part of the RICS mediation team at the panel discussion on dispute avoidance in the context of urban planning & development.
Stig believes that mediators should be knowledgeable in the field they are mediating for. Traditional mediation in the Netherlands does not require such an approach. When it comes to family and work disputes, expert knowledge may not be required. However, in the ‘built environment’ it is necessary to have expert knowledge in order to ascertain the situation and needs of both parties, to get to the underlying problems and to be able to offer a possible solution.

PropertyNL on mediation
Mediation offers a “simpler and more agile alternative”, say RICS experts in a PropertyNL leaflet on alternative dispute resolution. “Disagreements in the built environment can jeopardise personal and business relationships”, Paul Strohm writes for PropertyNL. What’s more, going to court can be avoided.
Provada is the Dutch annual real estate fair and is held from May 30th to June 1st. Discussions in the International Business Lounge this year will be centered around current affairs, such as innovation and Proptech; investment in cities; dispute avoidance; human capital and how hospitality is changing the face of alternative investments. Together with ULI, PropertyEU and the Dutch Ministry of Interior and Kingdom Relations, RICS is one of the founding partners of the International Business Lounge at Provada in RAI Amsterdam.
