The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Young Members Group (YMG) presents an international regional series of webinars and in-person conferences which highlight the unique importance and efficiency ADR plays in allowing the world’s economy to remain operative during times of great economic uncertainty. Perhaps no greater time of economic uncertainty exists than today. Drawing from their intellectual wealth, toolkits and vast networks, the next generation of ADR practitioners have framed a global crisis into an opportunity. Focused on the unique efficiency and importance of ADR during a time when entire nations’ judiciaries have been crippled, this group of ADR rockstars have produced eleven international regional conferences in Africa, Asia, Australia and New Zealand, Caribbean and Central America, China, Europe, India, Middle East, North America, Russia and South America for an ADR world tour entitled, “Arbitration and Mediation As A Global Force For Good.”
