Perspectives on Cross-Border Mediation in a Changed World

The Coronavirus pandemic has changed lives around the world and the future of work. Given the elevated safe distancing measures and global travel restrictions, online dispute resolution mechanisms will be essential in helping litigants move on quickly from business disruptions. But can remote mediation truly replace face-to-face mediation? And what changes during this lockdown season are positive changes that we should bring with us forward even when things settle down? In this webinar, three expert international mediators discuss what might be on the horizon in the years to come and their experiences in online cross-border dispute resolution.

The following topics will also be covered:

  • How different will mediation be in the post-pandemic world?
  • What do we need to do to be ready for the challenges and demands of mediation in this new landscape?
  • What are some groundbreaking technological solutions on the near horizon that will change the way we do dispute resolution?
