Type of the workshop: International Workshop
The workshop in brief:

With the growth of international trade, businesses are increasingly exposed to new partners, legal systems, and trade practices. These new opportunities can bring new risks, particularly if vital information and market intelligence is missing. Arbitration remains the most popular method for resolving international trade disputes, but mediation is growing in popularity. With arbitration and mediation institutions now existing in most countries and regions of the world, this publication provides greater transparency on how these processes work and how they can provide relatively inexpensive and quick access to the resolution of disputes for small companies in developing countries. Furthermore, the wider effects of corruption on the rule of law and sustainable improvement are not only harmful but destructive, especially when the justice sector is undermined.
