mes amis… my friends…

Run by our International Centre for ADR, the next edition will take place from 7 to 13 February in Paris, at ICC Global Headquarters and other nearby venues.

Bringing together over 500 participants—professional mediators, academics and students—from around the world, the highly-anticipated event provides a unique opportunity to share knowledge, discuss new developments and gain valuable insights on the latest techniques, strategies and trends in the field of mediation, and to meet with colleagues from more than 40 countries.





YMIThe Young Mediators’ Initiative (YMI) was established to support young mediators and mediation advocates with finding opportunities to gain experience in the field of Mediation. 

It is intended as a platform where young mediators and mediation advocates can contact each other, share knowledge, get in touch with organizations and network with competent mediators and mediation advocates to gain experience through shadowing, assistantships, internships, co-mediations and mentoring programs. 

The Young Mediators’ Initiative is run by its members on a voluntary basis.
