- Arbitration — Mediation
The International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR), the international division of the American Arbitration Association (AAA), continues to focus on the increased utilization of mediation in the international dispute resolution context. The ICDR has placed a greater emphasis on mediation by including language in its Rules promoting the use of mediation and through educating the parties directly about the benefits of mediation. It is the ICDR’s hope that the international community will embrace mediation as a valuable dispute resolution process and that parties will include mediation in their contract clauses and seek out mediation to address disputes. The ICDR is well situated to assist parties in the mediation process, and the ICDR’s International Mediation Procedures, experienced staff and robust panel of international mediators provides support to parties and other participants in ICDR administered mediations. This chapter focuses on the ICDR’s mediation experience and expertise as well as administered mediation generally.
