Webinar Series: Commercial Stability in a World of Conflict: Effective Dispute Management in Uncertain Times
The fall-out of armed and economic conflict, including the huge volume of commercial disputes triggered and/or caused by the conflict is overwhelming. This series will take a considered, clear-eyed look at the types of disputes, sectors and industries affected. Those attending will benefit from real-life examples of how to deal with economic disruption in times of geo-political uncertainty: contract disruption, supply chain disruption, raw material shortage, lack or over-supply of goods, human and capital displacement. It will provide a forum for discussion of market needs for information, education, and framing, and what the community of dispute resolvers can contribute to maintain and strengthen the system that underpins all international commerce, the rule of law.
Part 5: Acute Disputes - When Acute Becomes Chronic
The fifth in the commercial stability series, Sheila Bates and Michael McIlrath join us to look forward and backward at what has changed, stayed the same, and what those managing disputes and living with underlying conflict might learn from the series so far. Join us for a lively discussion of dealing with insecurity and action in a time of crisis.
