Xandra Kramer presented on online dispute resolution ('ODR: Advancing Digital Justice in Europe and some lessons from the Netherlands) at a Cyberjustice workshop organized by CNR-IRSIG in Bologna on 10 May 2018.

The presentation focused on the EU digital agenda, the policy to encourage and facilitate the use of ICT in various instruments on cross-border litigation, and the first year of experience with the ODR platform. In addition, she addressed the present situation in the Netherlands, the ambitious agenda to implement digitisation within the context of the Quality and Innnovation of Justice Program, and the recent problems encountered.
