The conference will follow its traditional format: with Day 1 being devoted to international commercial arbitration and Day 2 focusing on international investment arbitration.

Day 1 will see speakers discuss issues like the arbitrator’s power to adjudicate, the role of experts in the decision making process of tribunals, the destiny of awards that have been set aside, and energy disputes. Day 2 will be dedicated to fundamental issues of investment protection, such as lenders’, governments’ and investors’ perspectives on risk, treaty structuring and tax planning, the chances and risks associated with government contracts and political risk insurance.

The conference will provide an opportunity for leading international arbitration experts to meet with their European and Ukrainian peers and will create new and promising possibilities of future cooperation.
