IICL's Commitment to Online Dispute Resolution:
Recognizing (1) that access to efficient, trustworthy and fair redress systems are necessary to facilitate and support domestic and cross-border economic growth, and (2) the creation of online dispute prevention, management and resolution systems (and supporting legal instruments) are a road to such access, the IICL has actively led and supported the field of online dispute resolution (ODR) via its involvement in several global initiatives:
