The Unusual Suspects

Arbitration institutions: Activists or gendarmes?

In the context of the London International Disputes Week you’re cordially invited to a panel discussion and cocktail reception, jointly organised by CEPANI (the Belgian Centre for Arbitration and Mediation), AFA (French Association for Arbitration), VIAC (Vienna International Arbitral Centre) and NAI(Netherlands Arbitration Institute).


A lively debate that focuses on the role of arbitral institutions and if they should focus on welfare or order. The discussion's subjects will include:

  • The extent to which an arbitral institution should be proactive in finding amicable solutions to a conflict;

  • Whether institutions should provide rules of good conduct and ethical charts for arbitrators;

  • Whether they need to ensure the latter are complied with.

For who

Everyone who is active or interested in (international) arbitration
