Arbitration and Mediation as a Global Force for Good
The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Young Members Group (YMG) presents an international regional series of webinars which highlight the unique importance and efficiency ADR plays in allowing the world’s economy to remain operative during times of great economic uncertainty. Drawing from their intellectual wealth, toolkits and vast networks, the next generation of ADR practitioners frame global crises into an opportunity and have produced eleven international regional conferences under the theme of Arbitration and Mediation as a Global Force for Good covering Asia, Africa, Australia, North America, the Caribbean and Central America, South America, Russia, Europe, India, China, to the Middle East.
In the past decade, the use of ADR has substantially increased in South America to promote access to justice, and strengthen the rule of law. Now with many sanitary measures ordering lockdowns even of courthouses, arbitration and ADR reappears as an expeditious alternative to traditional litigation in the region.
