Understanding the nature and impact of an arbitral award enhances awareness of the issues at stake in an arbitral proceeding. This two day conference will examine various aspects of arbitral awards ranging from their historical perspective and theoretical basis, to technical and practical sessions designed to promote efficiency of the arbitral process. The following questions, amongst others, will be addressed:
• Do arbitral awards create binding case law?
• Does an award have a nationality?
• What is an award and the difference between the various types of awards?
• What can and cannot be enforced?
• Correction and interpretation issues will also be mentioned.
Highlights of the conference will include a look into the scrutiny process of the ICC International Court of Arbitration with a mock ICC Court session in which the Chairman and Secretary General of the ICC Court will participate, together with ICC Court members from the Region and around the world.
Issues related to enforcement of arbitral awards, notably when a State party is involved, will be raised during a round table session with a special focus on the particularities of the Region.
Last but not least, a whole afternoon will be dedicated to construction disputes, in cooperation with FIDIC, to examine decisions and recommendations of Dispute Boards as well as the specificities of disputes in construction arbitration.
The ICC has invited internationally renowned experts in arbitration and construction disputes to deal with this key aspect of the arbitral process, to share their experiences and propose concrete solutions.
