The essays in Contemporary Issues in Mediation (CIIM) Volume 6 reflect the turbulence of our times. In a world of flux, how does alternative dispute resolution remain relevant and interconnected with society today? With the recent ratification of the Singapore Convention on Mediation in 2020, there is no doubt that mediation is and will continue to be extremely pertinent in the world of dispute resolution. The COVID-19 situation and evolution of technology has also heralded a new era of cross-border and domestic online dispute resolution. Edited by Singapore's leading expert on mediation and negotiation, Professor Joel Lee, and former Chief Executive Officer of the Singapore International Mediation Institute (SIMI), Marcus Lim, CIIM is a unique and valuable addition to the growing body of mediation and dispute resolution literature. Whether you are interested in issues related to cognitive science, religion, domestic violence, finance, artificial intelligence, or Singapore’s culture, there is definitely something in this book for the academic, seasoned mediator and passionate student.
