New Online Mediation Training Guidelines’s Online Mediation Training Task Force has shared its Final Report and Recommendations, which can be reviewed in its entirety here. Stemming from a months long working group process from earlier in the year, this Report will be followed by an open online forum September 24, 2021 to discuss the recommendations and path forward.’

  1. Develop Online Mediation Advocacy and Resource Capacities
  2. Expand Access to Online Mediation Services and Online Mediation Training
  3. Update Mediation Practice and Ethical Standards to Embrace Current and Evolving Issues Raised by Online Mediation
  4. Assist Existing Mediation Programs to Renovate Basic Mediation Trainings and Expand Online Mediation Training
  5. Define a Universal Online Mediator Code of Disclosure
  6. Encourage Established Mediators to Get Training to Most Competently Offer Online Mediation Services
  7. Expand Online Mediation Mentorship, Clinical and Apprenticeship Opportunities
  8. Elevate the Recognition of Online Mediation as the “Green Way” to Resolve Disputes

Indian ODR Week

If you’re not aware, there’s a big event happening in ODR in India this week!

All the details are here. From the website:

“Spurred for the most part by the COVID pandemic, ODR became a national priority in 2020. The year began with ODR Week 2020 – the first week-long open discussions on ODR in India. NITI Aayog, in association with Agami and Omidyar Network India, brought together key stakeholders from the Judiciary, Government and Business, to recognize the need for ODR and advance its mainstreaming.

The Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy published a report ODR: The Future of Dispute Resolution in India. NITI Aayog published a discussion paper titled Designing the Future of Dispute Resolution: The ODR Policy Plan for India and requested inputs from the ODR community in India.

2020 truly allowed ODR to tip into the national consciousness and systems.  This leaves the question – what next? What will it take to make ODR accessible and familiar to all of India? How do we get businesses to onboard more disputes to ODR? How do we build capacity for this and who are the actors that can play a role in it? ODR Week 2021 seeks to explore this – the possibilities and opportunities for the ODR ecosystem in India. While reflecting on the successes and learnings of 2020, we will also discuss the potential pathways that can scale the ODR ecosystem in India.”
