Our largest educational event of the year, the ICC Mediation Week, brings together 450+ participants — professional mediators, academics and students—from around the world. The highly-anticipated week of events provides a unique opportunity to share knowledge, discuss new developments and gain valuable insights on the latest trends in the field of mediation.
ICC Mediation Week
The ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition is a globally-renowned moot that hosts 100+ mock mediation sessions over seven days to name a winning team.
48 teams of students from across the world are selected to compete and more than 120+ professional mediators and trainers participate every year on a voluntary basis to share their expertise and passion for mediation. Some will act as mediators, making use of their own experience in resolving cross-border disputes; while others take on the role of judges, assessing each team’s negotiating and problem-solving skills, as well as their ability to make good use of the mediator.
The event gives students the opportunity to put theory into practice and to interact with some of the world’s top mediators while offering the professionals the opportunity to engage and shape the next generation of mediators and mediation users through guidance, feedback and support.
For the first time in 2021, the ICC Mediation Competition went digital. More details on the next edition including the dates will be posted soon.
The International Mediation Roundtable
Established in 2014, the ICC Mediation Roundtable has quickly become one of the most valuable meeting points for ADR professionals worldwide. It is a dedicated platform to explore the latest developments in mediation and exchange experiences.
The Roundtable discussions are carefully developed alongside professional mediators and academics who have working knowledge of the industry. The event is reserved for professionals participating in the Mediation Competition, as well as a select group of invited guests and typically includes interactive workshops, engaging discussions, and dynamic plenary sessions.
