Issued on 19 January 2023 by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the ICC Declaration on Dispute Prevention and Resolution honours the Centenary of the ICC International Court of Arbitration (ICC Court) setting out a vision to shape dispute resolution and prevention for the next century.
What is the ICC Declaration on Dispute Prevention and Resolution?
The Declaration mirrors the pioneering vision of the founders of ICC (“the Merchants of Peace”) 100 years ago. Their vision marked a new phase in the history of international commercial arbitration and its institutionalisation with the creation of the ICC Court, which promotes access to justice, integrity and the rule of law.
Today, the Declaration outlines the guiding principles for a forward-looking framework to signpost the way forward for trusted ICC dispute resolution services.
