Decision ID: 002658

In October 1992 the 1992 Fund Assembly reiterated its view that arbitration could be used by the 1992 Fund in certain particular cases and that the techniques normally used in the context of mediation and conciliation should be applied by the 1992 Fund in its efforts to reach out-of-court settlements, as had been the case in the past. The Assembly agreed that further measures could be taken by the Fund in the field of disseminating information about the international compensation system, since improved information might in certain cases contribute to claims being settled out of court. The Director was instructed to examine whether the Fund could in appropriate cases engage an external person with a legal background to facilitate a dialogue and an understanding between claimants and the Fund and to present the views of the claimants to the Fund.
