Contemporary Issues In Mediation (CIIM) Research Essay Competition 2022

The Singapore International Mediation Institute’s (SIMI) Contemporary Issues In Mediation Research Essay Competition is an annual event aimed at developing and fostering an interest in mediation, a form of collaborative dispute resolution, amongst tertiary students.

For the past 7 years, “Contemporary Issues in Mediation” has been edited by academics and practitioners in the mediation field. Entries which contribute to the body of thinking on mediation (including but not limited to mediation standards) and help bring mediation practice to higher levels will stand a chance to have their essays published in CIIM Volume 8.

The competition is sponsored by SIMI and offers the following:

  • Top entry: Book Vouchers valued at SGD300 and winning essay published in the book series “Contemporary Issues in Mediation” Volume 8 *
  • Runner-up entry: Book Vouchers valued at SGD200 and winning essay published in the book series “Contemporary Issues in Mediation” Volume 8 *
  • All other short-listed entries: Essays will be published in the book series “Contemporary Issues in Mediation” Volume 8, and author(s) of the essay named as contributors accordingly
