Our largest educational event of the year, the ICC Mediation Week, will be going digital for the first time in its 16th edition, taking place from 5 to 11 February 2021.
Bringing together 350 participants—professional mediators, academics and students—from around the world, the highly-anticipated event provides a unique opportunity to share knowledge, discuss new developments and gain valuable insights on the latest techniques, strategies and trends in the field of mediation.
The ICC International Commercial Mediation Competition is a globally-renowned moot that will take place online for its next edition. 48 university teams will be selected to compete in 100 mock mediation sessions throughout the week.
More than 100 professional mediators and mediation 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. This unique exchange is an opportunity for professionals to enlighten and engage a new generation of mediators and mediation users through guidance, feedback and support.
