Recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards: the force of a multilateral regime in protectionist markets
Room C3.6, Convention Centre, Level 3

Committee(s)

Arbitration Committee (Lead)

Description

This session will examine classic and extreme examples of awards that reach the enforcement stage and how states respond under the New York Convention. Are awards not being enforced because of pervading national economic interests or does the New York Convention still function well and properly marginalise domestic national interests?
