Law students and young practitioners are welcome to submit contributions to the upcoming publication “Arbitrating for Peace,” devoted to international arbitration as a peaceful form of dispute resolution.
Arbitrating for Peace will describe the geopolitical role played by international arbitration over the centuries, and is produced by the SCC as part of its Centennial celebrations in 2017.
