Who Are the Arbitrators?

Justice Stream B1

Is justice determined by arbitrator selection? This session will explore the conundrum of the “best” arbitrator selection protocols and diversity—why arbitrators appear to be primarily Western males drawn from a limited pool. It will explore the causes of elitism and non-inclusiveness as well as possible concrete solutions to these legitimacy concerns, including the role that codes of conduct may play to promote justice in the appointment of tribunals.
