1st International ADR Conference in Bangkok

This annual flagship conference jointly organised by the UNCITRAL Regional Centre for Asia and the Pacific and Thailand Arbitration Centre is designed to attract legal practitioners, judges, in-house counsel, policymakers, academics and business persons for a comprehensive discussion on promoting the use of arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution.

The Conference in May focuses on new opportunities that result from legal convergence in alternative dispute resolution, and considers how legal unification and harmonisation are essential in promoting the use of ADR and the enforcement of awards and agreements. The Conference will have a focus on the Greater Mekong Subregion which lends itself to fostering internal trade and linkages outward to the wider economic initiatives of the Belt and Road and development of Thailand's Eastern Economic Corridor.

We are proud to announce our Mr Robert Pé will be speaking in Session 1 "Convergence of arbitral regimes: leveraging opportunities from a harmonised legal framework for arbitration" on 17 May 2018.

New article by Mr. Patrick M. Norton - China's Belt and Road Initiative: Challenges for Arbitration in Asia

We are proud to announce our member, Mr. Patrick M. Norton, has published a new article in the University of Pennsylvania Asian Law Review named "China's Belt and Road Initiative: Challenges for Arbitration in Asia".

Abstract:

The focus of international arbitration has begun to shift to Asia in the wake of that continent’s increasingly prominent role in cross-border trade and investment. China’s ambitious Belt and Road Initiative (“BRI”)2 promises to exacerbate this trend. The BRI will require a broad range of complex, inter-related commercial transactions with significant political and economic ramifications. These transactions can be expected to generate both commercial and investor-state disputes, principally in Asia, and many of these disputes will be submitted to arbitration. This article considers the significant challenges that these developments will present for international arbitration.
