With the support of the European Commission, the CNUE has been working throughout 2018 to implement the programme “Mediation for Notaries – Notaries for Mediation”. In order to better understand the practice of mediation by notaries in the handling of cross-border cases, five workshops were organised in five different countries.

A closing conference will present the results obtained and, above all, the practical tools developed together: creation of a practical guide, creation of a network of notary-mediators, etc.
