ADR Webinar Series 2020 (Series 2: Dispute resolution along the Belt and Road: What are the options? )
Series 2: Dispute resolution along the Belt and Road: What are the options?
Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) focusses on five major areas to improve connectivity: (i) policy coordination, (ii) infrastructure construction, (iii) unimpeded trade, (iv) financial integration, and (v) people-to-people ties. There are already a significant number of competing options available for the resolution of disputes arising from BRI projects, like domestic courts, nominated foreign courts, domestic arbitration institutions, international arbitration institutions, ad hoc options, mediation institutions, investor-state arbitration under the auspices of the International Centre for the Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) and so on. This session will discuss the pros and cons of each of these options as well as areas of development.
