Virtual Panel Series: UNCITRAL Texts and COVID-19 Response and Recovery- Day 5: COVID-19 Impact on International Dispute Resolution
Cuando: 15 de julio, 2020
Hora: 6:00 am - 8:00 am
In a joint statement issued by arbitral institutions in May 2020, parties and arbitrators were encouraged to mitigate the effects of any impediments caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, while ensuring the fairness and efficiency of arbitral proceedings. It also called for collaboration among institutions in making use of digital technology in resolving disputes remotely. Several arbitral institutions have adopted responsive measures and have issued guidelines to assist parties and arbitral tribunals. This session will address the impact that COVID-19 measures have had on international dispute resolution. The first panel will address its short-term consequences and the second panel will examine the long-term consequences. The panellists will further consider whether UNCITRAL texts on international dispute resolution have been able to accommodate such adaptations, as well as the way forward.
