CIArb is delighted to invite you to submit abstracts (300 - 500 words) to lead workshops at its Mediation Symposium this September.
The Institute is dedicated to the promotion of a harmonious society and helping people and organisations avoid, manage and resolve their disputes. We strongly believe that by opening the floor to the professionals and inviting their input into the workshops, Mediation Symposium 2019 will initiate a lively conversation about the ways in which mediation can be a successful tool of dispute resolution during the times of uncertainty.
Kindly hosted by Grant Thornton LLP, CIArb’s 12th Mediation Symposium will look at ‘Mediation in Times of Crises’.
The day will draw together presentations, deliberations and debates around the shifting contours of crises and how mediation can alleviate and resolve the disputes that they cause to different people. Although targeted at practitioners, this HQ event will also be of interest to academics, lawyers, politicians and the judiciary as well as business leaders with an interest in the developing world of mediation.
Each workshop will last for 90 minutes. Speakers can submit abstracts for the full 90 minute, or shorter sessions. CIArb will decide on the format depending on the submissions. Speakers can submit abstracts individually or in groups. In line with the workshops’ format, abstracts should be participatory - they should seek to involve the audience, including through exercises, engagement and debate. We invite you to submit abstracts (300 - 500 words) on the following workshops:
Morning Session (10.55 - 12.25)
Afternoon session (13.50 - 15.20)
Abstracts should set out with headings:
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is: 19 June 2019
Abstracts should be emailed with the following subject line - ‘Mediation Symposium 2019 Abstract: [Speaker Name]’ - to Dr Paresh Kathrani, Director of Education and Training, at CIArb at email@example.com
Further details on the symposium can be found here.

29 Nov 2023Joint intervention success as Churchill judgment allows the courts to order parties to mediate
In a significant moment for mediation, the highly anticipated Churchill judgment overturns the decision in Halsey, confirming it is not a breach of human rights to integrate mediation into the court process and, where appropriate, to order parties to mediate. CMC, Ciarb and CEDR joined forces to intervene in the case, arguing strongly for this outcome.
