Join us for a panel discussion celebrating the launch of International Arbitration in Times of Economic Nationalism, a well-timed book that reviews situations which may impact the way arbitration – in both commercial and investment disputes – is practiced. In recent years, developments across the world evidence states’ increasing skepticism about the benefits of international cooperation and dispute resolution through arbitration. This questions the efficiency of international economic law comprehended as a multilateral set of rules binding on all states equally. The book critically analyzes these trends and provides ideas on how international arbitration may overcome the contemporary obstacles.
This event is co-organized by Squire Patton Boggs LLP and the Center on International Commercial Arbitration at American University Washington College of Law (AUWCL).
Introduction by Horacio A. Grigera Naón – Independent international arbitrator, Director of the Center on International Commercial Arbitration at AUWCL.
