In the context of the London International Disputes Week you’re cordially invited to a panel discussion and cocktail reception, jointly organised by CEPANI (the Belgian Centre for Arbitration and Mediation), AFA (French Association for Arbitration), VIAC (Vienna International Arbitral Centre) and NAI (Netherlands Arbitration Institute).

The lively debate will explore the topic of efficiency from the perspective of arbitration under the respective rules of these four institutes. The discussion will touch upon the following subjects: the effects of the flexibility of institutional rules on efficiency, the effect of the desire for speed on efficiency, organisational aspects of an institute’s secretariat that may impact efficiency, various procedural features and mechanisms, and of course costs.
