Plenary 1 (Part A1) Introduction/Overview
International Arbitration and Its Contribution to the Rule of Law Narrative

Monday 9 May 2016

A robust legal system ensuring the rule of law is often seen as a necessity both for economic development and the protection of human rights. International arbitration is a system separate from and in addition to national court systems, and offers an alternative to resolving disputes before national courts. A panel of economists, political scientists, and jurists will debate and discuss how the international arbitration system affects the rule of law, human rights, and economic development.

Andrea Menaker (United States; White & Case)
Chair of the Programme Committee

Speaker: Judge Abdulqawi A. Yusuf (Somalia; International Court of Justice)
