Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist in International Arbitration?

On 4 September 2020, Co-editors Giacomo Rojas ElguetaJames Hosking and Yasmine Lahlou, in collaboration with ICCA, formally launched the research project “Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist in International Arbitration?”. The project arises from the need for reliable, jurisdiction-specific, information on the core legal questions posed by the increased use of remote arbitral hearings due to the COVID pandemic.

 
On 21 September 2022, at the ICCA Congress in Edinburgh, the co-editors launched ICCA Reports No. 10 – Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist in International Arbitration? This volume includes an umbrella report summarizing key takeaways from a survey of 78 New York Convention jurisdictions, as well as a series of articles by prominent commentators addressing cutting-edge issues around remote arbitration hearings.

 

The "Does a Right to a Physical Hearing Exist in International Arbitration?" Report is now available online.

 

The Reports of the comparative survey of 78 New York Convention jurisdictions are published individually on this page to allow the international arbitration community access to this user-friendly resource. Scroll down to access the national reports.
