About us

ADR Platform is an independant and non-profit ADR Provider and advocacy platform. ADR Platform is currently in the processes of setting up an effective regulatory and non-regulatory framework that will ensure ADR is used in an effective and sustainable manner.


ADR Platform is an ADR provider and advocacy platform aimed at advocating the effective use of ADR. Through dispute boards we are building a model through which effective dispute resolution can be conducted. Furthermore, ADR platform aims to work together with the ADR market at large to build a consensus around a regulatory and non-regulatory framework for the effective application of ADR.

ADR Platform is in favour on the use of ODR Techniques. The processing of complaints is done through one or multiple of the following disciplines: arbitration, binding advice, mediation and negotiation. ADR Platform uses dispute boards to couple projects, groups, and sectors to tailor made dispute resolution processes. Read more about dispute boards here.


The ADR Platform is headed up by Professor Hans Mulder and Giel Tettelaar.
