Description

6th Sciences Po Law School (SPLS) / Queen Mary University of London (QMUL) Joint Annual Arbitration Conference: Arbitration Is Dead, Long Live Arbitration!

12 April 2018, 14.45-17.00




Detailed Program


14.45 Start

Panel 1: Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS)

Some voices in the international arbitration community are predicting a gloomy future for investor-State arbitration. Among other things, the European Commission has been working on establishing a Multilateral Investment Court to replace arbitration as a means to resolve investor-State disputes. UNCITRAL set up a Working Group aiming to explore the feasibility of different avenues to overcome the criticism against the current state of ISDS. The CJEU’s recent Achmea decision addresses the incompatibility of arbitration with EU law under intra-European BITs and raises questions well beyond. What is the state of play: Is arbitration still an option for ISDS or should it be replaced by other mechanism(s)?

Moderator: Diego P. Fernández Arroyo (Sciences Po, Paris)

Panellists: George Bermann (Columbia University, New York)

Catherine Kessedjian (Université Paris 2)

Joongi Kim (Yonsei University, Seoul)

Catharine Titi (Université de Bourgogne, Dijon)


Panel 2: International Commercial Arbitration

The so-called public backlash against investor-State arbitration has led some practitioners to worry that international commercial arbitration might be affected in various ways. Among other things, there is a debate whether increased transparency may damage international commercial arbitration.

Is this an exaggerated worry or are there signs of collateral damages for international commercial arbitration?

Moderator: Maxi Scherer (Queen Mary, London)

Panellists: Stefano Azzali (Milan Chamber of Arbitration)

Andrea Carlevaris (Bonelli Erede Pappalardo, Milan)

James Castello (King & Spalding, Paris)

Philippe Pinsolle (Quinn Emanuel, Paris)

17.00 End
