Since its first conference in 1961, the ICCA Conferences and Congresses have established themselves as a place for the discussion of emerging ideas, the fundamentals and the contentious topics in international arbitration. The ICCA Congress Series includes every paper presented at an ICCA Congress since 1982. Consult the Congress Series for in-depth analyses of past and current issues in international arbitration, courtesy of leaders in the field.
Kluwer Arbitration subscribers can access the ICCA Congress Series online, including the latest volume, Evolution and Adaptation: The Future of International Arbitration.
"With the ICCA Congress series, future historians will be able to see how and why the arbitral pendulum invariably swings one way and, eventually, back again. But why wait for them, when we can read it now for ourselves?”
- V. V. Veeder

V.V. Veeder QC Memorial Volume: ICCA Congress Series

The Memorial Volume is a collection of the 11 papers Johnny Veeder presented at ICCA Congresses from 1990 to 2014, covering a wide range of topics – from strategic management in commencing an arbitration to an investigation of who the arbitrators are – all addressed in Veeder’s characteristically witty and unique voice.
