GMT+8 TIME ZONE

Following the first-ever Virtual Pre-Inter-sessional Meeting in November 2020, this Inter-sessional Meeting will gather together delegations of Working III of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL), world-renowned practitioners and academics to discuss ways to strengthen the use on mediation in ISDS disputes. The Inter-sessional Meeting will, through panel sessions, practical workshop and roundtable discussion, explore the draft notes prepared by the UNCITRAL Secretariat on treaties provisions and guidelines for the use of mediation, as well as the experience and perspectives on mediation of international organisations and different jurisdictions. Hybrid mode of virtual and in-person participation is adopted for this Inter-sessional Meeting.
