On 5 May, Matrix held an event entitled “When worlds collide: are international arbitral tribunals properly equipped for the future?”. A recording of this event is available online for you to download here.
International arbitral tribunals which might have previously only been called upon to determine traditional areas of law, such as investment, commercial and maritime delimitation law, are increasingly having to consider new areas such as environmental and human rights law, and the law on the use of force. Traditional law is also being disrupted by structural changes giving rise to issues of state succession and self-determination. Are arbitral tribunals equipped to deal with these changes?
