ABOUT THE BIANNUAL SYMPOSIUM

The Symposium on Salient Issues in International Commercial Arbitration is organized biannually by the Center on International Commercial Arbitration. The purpose to present a global perspective of current developments in international arbitration throughout the world. The symposium hosts prominent speakers and generates a dialogue about salient issues in international commercial arbitration, as well as current developments in BIT and ICSID arbitration, in the Americas, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, and East Asia.

CONFERENCE SUBJECT MATTER

International Arbitration in Times of Economic Nationalism

Submissions may include any original articles that analyze the trends, developments, and challenges in international arbitration in times of economic nationalism. Economic crises, financial volatility, social transformations, and political instability around the world have created a favorable environment for economic nationalism and other movements that may prove disruptive of the global economic world order that arose after the Cold War. International commercial and investment arbitration are particularly sensitive to such trends. For decades international arbitration professionals have advocated for the homogenization of regulations in international dispute settlement. The 1958 New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards was seen as the epitome of a transnational arbitral order that could offer an efficient legal framework for unhindered international business. After 1990, international investment arbitration developed into the premier dispute settlement procedure for company-to-state disputes with growingly homogeneous, international obligations for the treatment of foreign direct investment.

Although these obligations and rules appear universal, they are being questioned - and sometimes torn down - by politicians, economists, and lawyers. This has already taken a toll on international arbitration.
