Welcome to the website of MIFA PROJECT!

MIFA PROJECT aims to propose the Japanese style of the ideal international family mediation system. The main purpose of our study is to identify the problems in private international law and civil procedure which arise in international family mediation and to find their solutions in comparative law.

In this website, we report the results of our study and announce a schedule of trainings and symposiums.
