This fifth session of the ”Monday Arbitration Day” Campaign will focus on the appointment of the arbitral tribunal.
We are providing a general overview on the appointment of the arbitral tribunal by taking into consideration the provisions of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Rules of Arbitration 2021, in force since 1 January 2021.
On 19 May 2016, ICC signed an Equal Representation in Arbitration Pledge, calling for enhanced diversity in international arbitration.
