Be part of the Global Pound Conference Series and help shape the future of dispute resolution.
21st century businesses and organizations need conflict prevention and dispute resolution tools that are fit-for-purpose in our modern economy. Litigation and other traditional processes are still expensive, time-consuming and can jeopardize business and personal relationships. As businesses and our societies evolve, the tools utilized in accessing justice and resolving disputes need to evolve as well. This is the aim of the Global Pound Conference (GPC) Series 2016-17: to facilitate the development of 21st century dispute resolution tools at domestic, regional and international levels, through a series of structures dialogues around the world.
Launched in Singapore (March 17-18, 2016), and ¬finishing in London (July 6, 2017), the GPC Series will convene all stakeholders in dispute resolution (e.g., commercial parties, chambers of commerce, business executives, entrepreneurs, lawyers, academics, judges, arbitrators, mediators, policy makers, government officials, and others) at local conferences in over thirty countries. The International Mediation Institute (IMI) convenes it. The GPC Series is intended to provoke debate on existing tools and techniques, to stimulate new ideas and generate actionable data on what corporate and individual dispute resolution users actually need and want, both locally and globally.
