New York International Arbitration Center and CIARB NY Branch Announce New York Arbitration Week: November 14-18, 2022

NEW YORK, May, 2022 – The New York International Arbitration Center (NYIAC) and the New York Branch of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators (CIArbNY) are pleased to continue their joint leadership of New York Arbitration Week (NYAW) for the fourth consecutive year.  This year, the event will take place from November 14–18, 2022.  The program will continue to showcase New York as a leading global seat and center for thought leadership and feature a diverse range of formats and speakers on issues relevant to the global arbitration community.  We look forward to welcoming those who attend in person in New York and engaging with those who participate around the world.  Further details will be announced in the coming months.

The theme of New York Arbitration Week 2022 is “International Arbitration:  Who’s In Charge”.  This is a broad umbrella that includes a number of possible topics, which focus on shared responsibilities in international arbitration.  These possible themes include the allocation of responsibilities between courts and arbitral tribunals on the most sensitive issues in an arbitration; the role of users; how courts in various regions have contributed, and are contributing, to the development of international arbitration; limits to party autonomy created by arbitration institutions or tribunals; and the work being done by UNCITRAL.

NYAW 2022 will continue to showcase New York as a leading global seat and center for thought leadership.  As an equally important goal, NYAW 2022 will engage on these topics with the international arbitration community around the world, including institutions, arbitrators, scholars, and practitioners.
