Dispute Resolution on the Fringe!

Friday, September 16, 2016
8:30 am – 5:00 pm  (Registration starts at 8:00 am)
Vancouver School of Music
843 Seymour Street, Vancouver
or attend via live Webinar

Who should attend: All dispute resolution professionals and lawyers who act as counsel in mediations.

Learning level: All levels

Join us in this year’s exploration of dispute resolution! We are excited to announce that our keynote speaker will be international peace and security consultant, Stella Sabiiti. We’ll hear from Stella and from others who use their conflict resolution skills in a search for peace and inclusivity both abroad and in Canada.


Some additional highlights of the conference will be:

  • discussions of the growing use of restorative justice processes in workplaces, schools, environmental matters, and more
  • a workshop on Indigenous practices in dispute resolution processes
  • explorations of hybrid and tailored processes (med/arb, mini-trials, blended ODR, etc.), alternative models for delivering DR services, and models of co-mediation
  • a mini-hackathon aimed at understanding the potential for “DR apps” and other technological aids to conflict resolution

Our conference takes place during the Vancouver Fringe Festival, and we look forward to a workshop on Theatre Tools in Conflict Resolution, as well as opportunities to attend specially selected plays following the conference.
