THE U.S. AND ITS PLACE IN THE INTERNATIONAL ARBITRATION SYSTEM OF THE 21ST CENTURY

As observed by the reporters for a project to restate the U.S. Law of International Commercial Arbitration: “The United States occupies a unique place in the modern international arbitration system and in its historic evolution.… American lawyers, arbitrators and arbitration specialists have been important contributors to the growth and development of the international commercial arbitration system, from its very inception and within its most venerable institutions.... On the other hand, U.S. parties and lawyers have sometimes taken atypical approaches towards arbitral procedures, particularly when contrasted to some European counterparts, on matters as diverse as arbitrator independence, discovery and the role of lawyers.” What will be the role of the United States in international arbitration of the 21st Century, as trendsetter, outlier, or simply one in a crowd?

NEW FRONTIERS IN DISPUTE MANAGEMENT & RESOLUTION IN THE GLOBALISED WORLD

The past decade has brought dramatic changes to our economy and to our world, resulting in changes which created a great impact on dispute management and resolution and dominantly in the ADR field. The Corporate and business world now use Conflict Managers in their in-house and project managements. The reason being that the use of effective Conflict Management prevents almost 99% of all disputes from escalating into time consuming and costly litigation. ADR is consensual justice. The actors of international trade expect it, among other advantages, to be able to adapt the procedure to the characteristics of each case taking into account the parties’ mutual expectations and their cultural origins. Based on consent, a successful arbitration supposes a harmonious cooperation between parties, mediators, arbitrators, and other actors of the proceedings, including arbitral institutions.

Considering the new development allowing foreign lawyers to practice international arbitration in India*, the Master Conference looks at the Global perception of arbitration and mediation in India – making India more user-friendly. The panels will include an outstanding group of leading General Counsel, Attorneys, International Arbitration and Mediation experts and top Academics. The discussion outcome will form the recommendatory note for making India ADR friendly. The Panel will offer their expertise on an array of relevant topics on conflict prevention, management and resolution techniques, and the future of ADR.
