Survey on the Use of Mediation in the Asia Pacific Region

The International Institute for Conflict Prevention and Resolution (CPR) is a U.S.-based nonprofit think tank. The organization was founded more than 30 years ago by multinational corporations to examine ways to avoid time consuming and expensive litigation. Since that time, CPR has worked in conjunction with our law firm and corporate members to develop techniques to assist businesses in resolving their disputes by more expeditious and cost effective processes.

CPR members are increasingly doing business in the Asia Pacific region and have asked that we conduct a survey of businesses and law firms in the region to gather information about the use of mediation to resolve business disputes, to identify barriers to the use of mediation, and to, ultimately, make recommendations as to how to overcome these barriers. Working in conjunction with our Asia Pacific Advisory Council, CPR has created the attached survey, which will enable us to collect data and to quantify the results with a view to identifying those countries which might benefit from seminars or training on mediation.

We would greatly appreciate your assistance in completing the survey.  Please use the link below.  All information gathered will be kept strictly confidential, and your company name will not be identified. If you have any questions, please contact us. In addition, if you know of any corporations or law firms that should be included in this survey, please feel free to forward this email or the following link to them:

Thank you in advance for taking the time to assist CPR in this important endeavor.
