There are several informal arbitration circles established in Germany which aim to promote the practice of arbitration and to provide networking opportunities for those interested in arbitration. These circles will occasionally organise events in support of such purposes. Regional groups can be found in Hamburg, Stuttgart, Frankfurt am Main and Munich.
Here is more information about these groups:
