ODR 2017 will bring together stakeholders from around the world, judiciaries, academics, dispute resolution institutions, online dispute resolution providers and start-ups who will share their expertise in ODR and its integration into court and alternative dispute resolution systems, and illustrate the impact of ODR on access to justice. They will show how such online programmes may be implemented to benefit the administration of dispute resolution, and the direct benefits to our civil, societal and commercial life in general. The ultimate results are the benefits that individuals, societies, businesses and courts draw from facilitated resolution of disputes and avoidance of bureaucracy.
