Earlier this year we circulated the article ‘Time for Another Big Bang in Alternative Dispute Resolution’, by Michael Leathes and Deborah Masucci: http://imimediation.org/global-pound-conference, proposing a new conference to wake up the field of ADR. We appreciated your words of support in response to that article, and before the official invitation goes to the wider IMI community, we would like to let you know of the upcoming convention ‘Shaping the Future of International Dispute Resolution’, which is the first planned in a series of conferences.
The official invitation can be seen below. All information plus a registration link can be found at:
We hope that you might be able to join us at this ground-breaking interactive convention!
A host of cooperating organizations are joining this effort. Unfortunately, the invitation did not include an offer to appear as a speaker, and worse yet was not accompanied by a round-trip ticket to London. Nevertheless I urge those who can, to attend, and to let us know how it went.
