Arbitration and the Rule of Law: Challenges, Changes and Contradictions

2 November 2016 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
White & Case
White & Case
5 Old Broad St
EC2N 1DW London
United Kingdom

This event will examine to what extent and in what ways arbitration raises challenges for building the rule of law. Speakers will look at the benefits that arise from arbitration, e.g., as it affects investment (including in emerging economies and developing countries), or as it enhances the rule of law by using good procedural practice and achieving substantive outcomes resulting in commitments that will be honoured.

At the same time, they will address the way arbitration poses a challenge to, and even diminution of, the rule of law by virtue of its privatisation of process and individualisation of outcomes, where the practice and precedent are not carried forward into formal procedural justice.
