The ICC International Court of Arbitration is hosting the 17th International Forum on Online Dispute Resolution under the name “Equal Access to Information & Justice – Online Dispute Resolution” in Paris on the 12th-13th June 2017. The conference will be held at the Marriott Hotel on the Champs-Elysees.
The Forum has been held on a yearly basis since it was formed, in 2002, jointly by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe and the National Center for Technology and Dispute Resolution (of the University of Massachusetts (Amherst)).
65 of the leading experts and practitioners in the application of online technology in resolving civil disputes will present papers. The founder of The Mediation Room, Graham Ross, is chairing one of the sessions covering developments in bringing ODR into the mainstream of justice as represented by the courts.
The conference will explore innovative applications of information communications technology that are playing a valuable role in promoting access to justice.
ODR 2017 is a must-attend event. It will demonstrate how online programmes may be implemented to benefit the administration of dispute resolution, and the direct benefits to our civil, societal and commercial life in general. The ultimate results are the benefits that individuals, societies, businesses and courts draw from facilitated resolution of disputes and avoidance of bureaucracy.
