We Invite You to the GPC Series 2016-17

21st century businesses and organisations need conflict prevention and dispute resolution tools that are fit-for-purpose in our modern economy. Litigation and other traditional processes are still expensive, time-consuming and can jeopardise personal relationships.

As businesses and our society evolve, the tools utilised in accessing justice need to evolve as well. This is the aim of the Global Pound Conference (GPC) Series 2016-17: to facilitate the development of 21st century dispute resolution tools at domestic, regional and international levels.

EVENTS AROUND THE WORLD
Launching in Singapore and finishing in London, the GPC Series will convene all stakeholders in dispute resolution - commercial parties, lawyers, academics, judges, arbitrators, mediators, policy makers, and others - at conferences around the world. These conferences will provoke debate on existing tools and techniques, stimulate new ideas and generate actionable data on what corporate and individual dispute resolution users actually need and want, both locally and globally.

Be part of the Global Pound Conference Series and help shape the future of dispute resolution.

The Core Questions to Shape the Future

The GPC Series events will centre on a set of Core Questions that will be asked to all stakeholders involved in dispute resolution. At each event participants will be introduced to various issues, asked the Core Questions relating to them, and discussions will ensue based on the responses given, and in particular any notable differences between stakeholder groups.
