Presentation

#UIAWFMC

Forum organised by the UIA with the support of the Swiss Chambers' Arbitration Institution (SCAI) and the Swiss Chamber of Commercial Mediation (SCCM)

 

The World Forum of Mediation Centres was created in 2001. It brings together the best  commercial mediation practitioners and ADR centres from around the world, together with managers, academics, teachers, trainers, young practitioners, and all those interested in learning more about mediation.

The Forum takes place every 9 months in different countries around the world. It fosters the exchange of views on the development of ADR, enhancing knowledge, and best practices, giving new ideas, ensuring the best understanding of ADR, and learning from other cultures. 

This 26th Forum promises to be again very exceptional because it will be the opportunity to gather experiences, ideas, observations about development of mediation and make comparison to enhance our knowledge and our practice. Do not miss this opportunity to meet with your colleagues, other professions connected to mediation practices, and other cultures.

Zurich is a town to discover, a mediation discovery, a place to have a great Forum.

The various sessions of the Forum will be again stimulating and attractive, bringing together managers interested in the understanding and development of mediation for their companies, experienced and younger mediators, lawyers, academics, judges, students who are our future decision makers.  

Do not miss this opportunity to learn and enhance your knowledge and practice about mediation.

The 26th Forum will be an unforgettable international event. Practitioners from the USA, Australia, China, Africa and Europe have already confirmed their participation. 

Mark your diaries now, save the dates and make sure to register! 

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Zurich!
