ICDR® Young & International (Y&I) is the networking group for arbitration and other ADR practitioners under 40 sponsored by the International Centre for Dispute Resolution® (ICDR), the international division of the American Arbitration Association® (AAA®). ICDR Y&I provides networking opportunities in the areas of commercial and public interest arbitration, as well as alternative dispute resolution.

ICDR Y&I operates both on a global and a regional basis. It cooperates with other international or regional organizations in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. ICDR Y&I Associates are offered the opportunity to meet and exchange ideas with their peers all over the world, and to benefit from the experience of more senior practitioners in seminars and conferences.

ICDR Y&I Board

The ICDR Y&I Board is the main body in charge of preparing and holding events and conferences in close cooperation with the ICDR. It has discretion to propose the topic, format, and venue of the events, and reports to the ICDR on the progress of the events’ preparation and their outcomes, as well any other ICDR Y&I initiatives. It also has an advisory function in the ICDR Y&I decision-making process with a focus on regional network-building through (1) encouraging membership in ICDR Y&I, (2) raising awareness of ICDR Y&I in the broader arbitration and ADR community and (3) organizing ICDR Y&I initiatives.
