The session will involve contributors familiar with a wide variety of arbitral jurisdictions and systems.
They will together explore topical questions of arbitrability and enforcement:
-What can arbitrators sensibly decide?
-What are the practical limits of arbitration?
They will also explore issues of enforcement: how to enforce an arbitration award ? What legitimate objections can be taken?
The session will round off with predictions of experienced practitioners for the future
a. How do the panel expect international arbitration to develop, both with reference to their particular system and generally?
b. How can international dispute resolution overcome the arbitrability and enforcement issues which are current today?
