Resilience and Reinvention:

Dispute Resolution During a Crisis and Beyond

International Virtual Conference

15 – 16 July 2021

Australasia's largest dispute resolution organisation, Resolution Institute, is pleased to invite you to its 2021 international conference, Resilience and Reinvention: Dispute Resolution During a Crisis and Beyond.

As COVID-19 continues to disrupt the local and global economies, significant challenges abound. For both private enterprises and public institutions, priorities are rapidly shifting under increased pressure. For organisations in dispute prone sectors, the efficient resolution of disputes is now more important to maintain business and rebuild community confidence and harmony. Increasingly, flexibility and reinvention of consent-based dispute resolution procedures are key to meeting the needs of disputants in these challenging times.

This premier two-day conference is the first major event in the region’s dispute resolution calendar. Supported by global institutes, government, industry associations, and sponsors, the program comprises 27 specialist sessions and seven plenaries, bringing together over 100 key influencers and stakeholders from business, government, judiciary, commercial and academia, addressing developments and emerging trends across a wide range of sectors.

This is a must-attend event highlighting the importance and opportunities of dispute resolution in the COVID-19 era and beyond.

We look forward to welcoming you to what promises to be a high-end professional and social experience.
