Welcome to our first newsletter of the year. For this edition, as part of our continuous commitment to promoting international arbitration practice and a more diverse and inclusive arbitration community, we have a selection of 22 articles covering a wide range of subjects (from interim measures to the role of administrative secretaries) and jurisdictions (from New Zealand to Venezuela). 

We are also bringing fresh and contemporary material such as arbitrating indigenous disputes, arbitration and compliance, Covid-19 and M&A transactions, human rights, and transnational blockchain-based arbitration. So much has changed in the world in the last two years, and arbitration has certainly been affected in many ways by the uncertainties, instabilities, technological and scientific innovations, geopolitical events, and economic crisis that have been taking place lately.

This edition is thus a good introduction for the Committee’s activities of this year. We encourage you to keep contributing and helping us to continue our innovative work. 

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Istanbul for our first in person conference since 2019.
