Singapore Convention on Enforcing Mediated Settlement Agreements

The Singapore Convention on the enforcement of mediated settlement agreements will enter into force on December 9, 2020. As Houston Putnam Lowrey puts it, "the initial list of contracting states is modest":

Fiji
Qatar
Saudi Arabia
Singapore

The Convention will also enter into force for Belarus on January 15, 2021.

The United States is among the countries that have signed but not yet ratified the Singapore Convention. The full list of the 46 or so other signatory states can be found on the UNCITRAL website by clicking here.

The text of the convention can be found by clicking here.
