International Dispute Resolution Tournament (Athens, May 14-17 2016)
The International Academy of Dispute Resolution – INADR (www.inadr.org), headquartered in Chicago, USA brings FOR THE FIRST TIME in Greece an international competition – acquaintance with mediation.
On 14-17 of May 2016, an international competition will be held in cooperation with ALBA Business School and the American College of Greece offering many benefits for the participants. All students will have the unique opportunity to be acquainted with the dispute resolution procedures, and more specifically with mediation which is now growing in Greece. The first two days will present a more theoretical approach, with experienced internationally recognised mediators offering their know-how on mediation procedures and techniques. The competition phase will be conducted during the latter two days, offering the participants the opportunity to “test” the procedure and their knowledge.
Mediation is the attempt to help parties in a disagreement to hear one another, to minimise the harm that can come from disagreement (e.g. hostility or ‘demonising’ of the other parties) to maximize any area of agreement, and to find a way of preventing the areas of disagreement from interfering with the process of seeking a compromise or mutually agreed outcome.
