Global Pound

In 2016-2017, IMI launched and conducted the Global Pound Conference (‘GPC’) Series. The GPC was a not-for-profit series of conferences around the world, taking place in 28 cities across 22 countries. It began in Singapore and finished in London, bringing together numerous dispute resolution stakeholders. The GPC provoked debates on dispute resolution tools and techniques, stimulated new ideas, and generated actionable data on what corporate and individual dispute resolution users actually need and want, both locally and globally.

1 year, 28 events, 22 countries and online

Since the conclusion of the GPC series, the conversation has continued on how to improve access to justice and the quality of justice around the world in civil and commercial conflicts. At first, the Global Pound Conversation was published on the historic GPC website; in December 2018, it was integrated into IMI’s content. You can find all past GPC articles under the ‘News’ tab, or by using the search field. See also:
