From Cambridge University Professor Felix Steffik on Linkedin: “Today, the OECD has published its report on ‘Developing Effective Online Dispute Resolution in Latvia’. The report documents the assessment of online dispute resolution in Latvia and summarises key policy recommendations to support its development. It draws from the prior influential work of the OECD on access to justice, for example, the OECD Recommendations on Access to Justice and People-Centred Justice Systems.
I had the immense pleasure to contribute to this project as an international expert and would like to extend my gratitude to the entire OECD team, the EU representatives and everyone involved in Latvia. The two years with this project were full of inspiration and passion to chart the right path for online dispute resolution. I am delighted to see the report in its final version. It is a treasure trove of strategies for designing and regulating online dispute resolution.

At the close of the hearing, the AI assistant wrote to the disputants: “Today’s hearing has come to an end. I am currently analyzing the trial data and the ruling opinion will be sent to the arbitration tribunal via email in 5 minutes.” “Created by the Guangzhou Arbitration Commission, the assistant can improve the efficiency of resolving disputes by nearly four times by completing procedural tasks including intelligent acceptance of cases, multilingual realtime translation, blockchain recognition of evidence and inputting viewpoints and statements, according to the commission,” writes Qiu Quanlin for China Daily.

From Mohit Mokal’s blog:
“SEBI, the Securities and Exchange Board of India, has recently announced its plan to implement an online dispute resolution (ODR) mechanism for its stakeholders. The move aims to provide a more accessible and efficient dispute resolution process for investors and other market participants. This announcement came after the SEBI Board Meeting held on 29th March 2023, and the ODR mechanism will be implemented through a dedicated online platform, designed to offer easy access to investors, intermediaries, and listed companies for dispute resolution.
SEBI has been working tirelessly to improve the dispute resolution process, particularly by making it more efficient and swift. Currently, dispute resolution cases can take a long time to be resolved, causing frustration to investors and stakeholders. Hence, SEBI’s decision to enable online dispute resolution will allow investors and other stakeholders to submit their complaints online and have them resolved in a timely manner. SEBI is also committed to ensuring the security and reliability of the ODR process…”
