Core Questions

​The Core Questions are Online!

GPC Series 2016-17 -- Core Questions -- Publication Copy (March 6 2016)

The Core Questions have been finalised and can no longer be modified.​ These questions have been developed via a lengthy consultation process involving 6 prior drafts, a global survey (click here to view the anonymous results​), and a public consultation period. We thank everyone for their contributions and believe we are positioned to generate some valuable data to shape the future.

The Core Questions​

​​​Each event will use a technology platform to enable all participants to vote on a set of standardised core questions. These questions will enable all stakeholders to share their views on the future of dispute resolution, what tools are required, and how to modernise the dispute resolution landscape.  The questions are intended to explore the needs and wishes of users and what access to ​justice means​ to them, and all other stakeholders.

The organisers suggest that the core questions be voted upon and discussed in four sessions, to provide time for reflection and discussio​n: 

​Session 1:

Access to Justice & Dispute Resolution Systems: what do users want, need & expect?

Session 2:

How is the market currently addressing parties' wants,​ needs and expectations?

Session 3:

How can dispute resolution be improved? (Overcoming obstacles and challenges)

Session 4:

Promoting better access to justice: What action items should be considered and by whom?

The data collected in response to the core questions will be availab​le online as each event occurs.  It will be compiled into a final report at the end of 2017, to help shape how dispute resolution may be conducted for years to come. The data and report will be publicly available via this website to anyone wishing to read them.  It is hoped they will support new research in the field and help consolidate stakeholder views on dispute resolution, providing optimal access to justice for all disputants.
