International Arbitration Committee

About the Committee

This committee's activities aim to promote and improve international arbitration as a method of resolving cross-border disputes. The committee emphasizes the development and dissemination of best practices in this field through educational and training programs on procedural and substantive aspects of international arbitration under both institutional and adhoc rules. The committee is also a platform for publications on international arbitration, and monitors current legislation and case law in order to take, where appropriate, legal and policy positions that are consistent with enhancing the effectiveness of this method of dispute resolution.
