About the Symposium

The event “Harmony in Dispute Resolution: Exploring Synergies between Commercial Arbitration and Sustainability in the Modern Legal Landscape”, a collaboration between MediateGuru and TERI SAS (The Energy and Resources Institute- School of Advanced Studies) is a panel discussion specially designed with the primary objective of delving into the intricate intersection between commercial arbitration and sustainability. By doing so, it aims to foster a deeper comprehension of how these converging domains can collaborate to reshape the existing paradigm of dispute resolution.

At its core, this event seeks to shed light on the convergence points between commercial arbitration and sustainability, emphasizing opportunities where their amalgamation can lead to ethical, sustainable, and efficient practices in dispute resolution. It strives to serve as a catalyst for showcasing innovative approaches and best practices that seamlessly blend the principles of commercial arbitration with the imperatives of sustainability, thus contributing to the establishment of a more adaptable and responsible legal framework. Central to this endeavour is the engagement of diverse perspectives, including legal experts, industry leaders, sustainability advocates, and stakeholders. Through curated discussions, the event aims to foster multifaceted dialogues that bridge gaps, enhance mutual understanding, and promote collaboration between these interrelated yet distinct spheres. Moreover, a significant focus of this event lies in advocating for the development and implementation of ethical, sustainable, and equitable solutions within arbitration processes. By aligning business interests with global sustainability objectives, it endeavours to generate outcomes that are not only beneficial to the involved parties but also contribute positively to the broader global community. Amidst the enriching technical sessions, the conference embraces the importance of forming connections and engaging in informal discussions to enhance collaboration and knowledge exchange. These networking sessions, scheduled for 1.5 hours between the technical sessions and accompanied by tea and coffee break, offer attendees a valuable opportunity to connect, converse and foster relations. Ultimately, the event strives to catalyse actionable outcomes through active dialogue, knowledge exchange, and consensus-building. Its overarching goal is to usher in a more just, efficient, and sustainable global legal landscape by infusing the narrative of dispute resolution with the fundamental principles of sustainability, thereby creating a harmonious and responsible legal environment in today's world.
