ICC YAF: Independence and Impartiality of Arbitrators

Delhi, India, • English

The ICC Young Arbitrators Forum (YAF) is organizing the Conference ‘Independence and Impartiality of Arbitrators’, kindly sponsored by Lakshmikumaran & Sridharan attorneys, to be held in Delhi, India on 23 July 2016. This ICC YAF Conference will be an ideal forum for young practitioners to exchange thoughts on international arbitration, and to enrich their network in the region.

Description

Independence and impartiality of arbitrators arise from the arbitrators’ essential obligations towards the parties to arbitration. These obligations are accepted principles of international arbitration. However, the perception under which circumstances an arbitrator is considered neutral, impartial and independent may vary in the context of cultural and transnational laws. The conference will target the accepted norms and challenges in international arbitration with respect to the issue of independence and impartiality of arbitrators.
