CIArb Mediation Symposium 2019

September 27, 2019 | 09:00 - 17:35

Grant Thornton UK LLP, London, United Kingdom

The last decade has seen several major economic and political upheavals. From the repercussions of the global credit crisis, the disruption and job losses caused by automation to the uncertainty caused by Brexit, many have been adversely affected by the turmoil that these and other events have caused. They have all impacted on personal and commercial relationships and there is a strong likelihood that these uncertainties will grow in the future. Brexit is likely to lead to a domino effect as the strain caused by leaving the European Union impacts on commercial and personal relationships. Kindly hosted by Grant Thorton, LLP, CIArb’s 12th Mediation Symposium will look at ‘Mediation in Times of Crises’.

The day will draw together presentations, deliberations and debates around the shifting contours of crises and how mediation can alleviate and resolve the disputes that they cause to different people. Although targeted at practitioners, this event will also be of interest to academics, lawyers, politicians and the judiciary as well as business leaders with an interest in the developing world of mediation.
