WMD 3 – Interview with Delcy Lagones de Anglim
The third episode of WMD (World Mediation Deacons). I met Delcy at Korea International Mediation Centre's workshop. She taught me practical tips and solutions to overcome the difficulties in international commercial mediation.
She had too many stories to tell. Thus, I split the interview into two parts. In this first part, she tells about one of her landmark mediation cases, she mediated 85 parties scattered in 8 different countries with only 3 interpreters. Surprisingly, there was no co-mediator in that case.
Furthermore, you can listen to her mediating story between African parties. She sang “Malaika,” the Swahili love song, to celebrate the successful settlement. I tried to play the Korean flute (Daegum or Jutddae) with her melody, and the harmony was not that bad.
