Section on Mediation, Good Offices and International & Sophisticated Crime  (ADR Section)

The Group is pleased to announce the creation of a section dealing with Mediation / Conciliation, Good Offices and International & Sophisticated Crime.

Although the IDR Group’s interest in international dispute resolution concentrates on international arbitration – both in the commercial and “inter-State” spheres – the Group’s membership includes those who also have expertise in the field of Alternative Dispute Resolution:  ADR.

There are members who have expertise in Mediation / Conciliation (in the area of commercial disputes) and “Good Offices” (in the area of inter-State disputes).  In addition to expertise in those areas, two of the Group’s  Consultants – Brian Michael Jenkins and Captain P. Mukundan – are leading experts in the fields of commercial fraud and sophisticated crime. This expertise reaches into areas such as maritime crime – including piracy – and aviation crime. Other members of the Group with expertise in relation to fraud and corruption are accountant Arthur Harverd and lawyer Andrew Berekeley.
