Teams from Sri Lanka are now making a global mark in Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR). Most recently 4 students have been invited to represent their country at the Warsaw Negotiations Rounds (WNR) in Poland. The well-seasoned team is coached by Anuji Kannangara a certified mediator, and led by Shayhum AbooSalih who was part the winning Mediation team at Bucerius Germany and a student of the University of London (UOL) . 

Joining them is Shanik Pakeer from the Sri Lanka Law College who supported the team at the last IMSG Singapore. Simon Askey of UOL received letters of the teams dedication and exceptional performance. Milindri Angammana a fellow mediation advocate also took part.

The organisers appreciate the commitment shown and have extended their support to help the crew liaise with well-wishers and the Swiss embassy who handles the Polish Visa for Sri Lanka. This will allow the team to attend the negotiations in person in 2024.

Prestigious opportunities like WNR open the doors for more to receive international exposure in their careers. Shayhum is confident that by participating in more global events the world would be able to benefit from the countries’ contribution and also usher in sponsorships and jobs for the youth which would benefit the Island’s foreign exchange initiatives.

Negotiation is a key interpersonal skill which facilitates better conversations. The nation is honored by the work done by Warsaw and wishes that such endeavors lead to more fruitful and amicable efforts.
