Dear Adjudication Society members,
My name is Richard Inman and I live and work in Sydney, Australia after moving from England in 2012. As an adjudicator I have working knowledge of the UK's adjudication legislation and the equivalent legislation in each Australian State and Territory. I'm currently preparing a dissertation as part of my LLM in Construction Law and Arbitration via Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, the full title of which is 'Is it in the Public Interest for an Equivalent 'United Nations New York Convention for the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards 1958' to be Prepared and Adopted for the Purpose of Enforcing Adjudication Decisions in the Internatonal and UK Construction Industry?'. This question is perhaps even more pertinent following the creation of the 'United Nations Convention on International Settlement Agreements Resulting from Mediation' (the Singapore Convention on Mediation) in August 2019.
In order to gain research data for my dissertation I've prepared a GDPR compliant online survey, which consists of a maximum 14 short questions and is being hosted by Jisc online surveys. Participants will remain anonymous at all times.
My aim is to obtain the opinion of participants from the construction and engineering industry in the countries already operating adjudication legislation and also from countries not currently operating adjudication legislation, and I would very much welcome the assistance of the Society's members.
