Singapore Convention Signing

Welcome to the new International Mediation Institute website. As we celebrate our 10th Anniversary, we are as committed as ever to the organization’s Mission to promote global standards for the resolution of disputes and access to justice. As you navigate this new website, we hope it will be easier to find the resources and tools you have so depended on in the past. In the next few months, we will be expanding the website to include the many benefits that we realized through the Global Pound Conference. Thank you to our supporters and to you, our IMI Community.
