New York Arbitration Week

November 14-18, 2022

The Competition: International Arbitration, International Commercial Courts and the Singapore Convention

Program Host: SIAC
When: Tuesday, November 16, 2021
a.m. – 10:15 a.m.

Businesses facing international disputes have an increasing range of options beyond arbitration with the rise of international commercial courts and the increasing prominence of mediation following the launch of the Singapore Convention. Join us as we examine and explore what such competition might mean for the future of international arbitration and the role arbitral institutions may play to preserve and progress the utility of arbitration in an increasingly crowded dispute resolution marketplace.

Topics for discussion include the relationship between commercial courts and international arbitration, effect of the Singapore Convention on international arbitration, and the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on each of these dispute resolution mechanisms.
