The growth of cross-border trade has brought with it an increase in international commercial disputes and ever greater recourse to arbitration as a neutral and private means of resolution that even comes with its own global framework for award recognition and enforcement.
For Eastern European and Central Asian States, the ‘One Belt, One Road’ (OBOR) initiative introduced by China has created further opportunities for expansion into new markets and broad cross-border economic co-operation which, in turn, has reinforced the importance to the business and legal communities of international arbitration as the dispute resolution means of choice.
It is no surprise that approaches to arbitration and arbitral practice continue to develop apace, with an ever-increasing emphasis on commercial and legal proactivity in concluding arbitration clauses, preparing for and conducting cases, and addressing post-award issues (whether as winner or loser). At the same time, new arbitral institutions are being established, while existing arbitration hubs are busy vying for new business.
Against such a dynamic arbitral background, this [one day] course comprises highly practical and intensive sessions, focusing on current developments and challenges, identifiable best practices and strategy formulation.
