Dispute Resolution and Arbitration Committee

Transparency & Diversity in International Arbitration
- Moving Ahead and Striking the Right Balance?

Session Synopsis:

What is transparency in international arbitration? Is more transparency a good thing? If not, why not? If so, how does one achieve greater transparency? How is gender diversity perceived in international arbitration, particularly in Europe and Asia? Will inclusion of individuals of varied gender, racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds add value? Will lack of diversity affect the quality of arbitral awards and undermine confidence in the process? Is a diverse tribunal more insightful and better qualified to determine disputes? During this session, the speakers will share their perspective on transparency and diversity issues and the challenges and opportunities which arise from tackling them, as well as their experience of the importance which parties attach to these questions.
