ICCA-ASIL Task Force on Damages

In December 2016, ICCA and ASIL joined forces to establish the ICCA-ASIL Task Force on Damages to address an issue of particular importance, but too often overlooked, in the field of international arbitration: quantification of damages. The Task Force brings together a blue-ribbon panel of leading legal and economics experts from jurisdictions across the globe to think creatively about how to promote consistency and rigor in the field’s approach to damages.

Task Force Events

The ICCA-ASIL Damages Task Force has held a number of seminars and events to present and discuss its ongoing work. The first of these events was a seminar held in Washington D.C. on 11 April 2017, followed by another seminar in Hong Kong on 15 November 2017. At these seminars working groups led by Task Force members focused separately on legal, procedural and financial issues associated with damages in international arbitration.


At the ICCA Congress in Sydney on 16 April 2018, the Task Force hosted a breakfast where a prototype for the electronic damages tool was debuted. A second breakfast event was held on the occasion of the IBA Annual Conference in Rome on 9 October 2018.
