What is the status of the Singapore Convention on the Mediation in Chile?


The CAM Santiago has constantly followed the process of negotiations of the United Nations Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation. The text of the Convention was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly on 20 December 2018 (A / RES / 73/198) and Chile signed the Convention along with 46 other States on 7 August 2019.

Chile has not yet ratified the Convention, due to the fact that although the signature is an exclusive attribution of the President of the Republic (article 32 N ° 15 of the Political Constitution of the Republic), the Executive must send a project to be approved by the Chilean Parliaments (article 54 of the Chilean Constitution) as a prior step to depositing the instrument of ratification with the United Nations.
