ICC YAAF - SICC: Facilitating Settlements in International Arbitrations

29 Nov 2023

Singapore English
Start: 16:00 (SGT) | End: 18:00 (SGT)

The ICC Young Arbitration and ADR Forum (ICC YAAF) and the Singapore International Chamber of Commerce (SICC), are co-organizing a panel discussion that will delve into the art of resolving disputes in the midst of ongoing arbitration proceedings.

In this event, legal experts and industry leaders will convene to explore innovative strategies, share practical experiences, and discuss the latest developments in this critical field. Against the backdrop of Singapore's commitment to promote mediation, exemplified by the Singapore Convention on Mediation, and the recent ICC report, "Facilitating Settlements in International Arbitration," produced as part of its commitment to its centenary declaration, this event offers a unique opportunity to gain insights into dispute resolution when adversarial positions have been entrenched during arbitration.

Do not miss the chance to engage in a dialogue that sheds light on the future of dispute resolution, bridging the divide between adversarial arbitration and collaborative dispute settlement.
