Time: 10:30 AM  EST - 3:00 PM  EST
Gewirz Student Center; 120 F Street Northwest ; 12th Floor; Washington, DC 20001

Tools of foreign policy, economic sanctions may directly or indirectly affect those outside the targeted jurisdictions. Nowadays, in a context of globalization of transactions, whenever a government or a supranational body imposes a measure, it is likely to have a far-reaching effect on entities, nationals, and commercial affairs, currently, supposed to be or about to be involved in an arbitration proceeding.

First time that the topic will be covered outside Europe, this conference aims to provide a comprehensive and up-to-date coverage and explore the broader implications of the application of political, trade and financial sanctions in international arbitration. The discussion will address contractual obligations of the parties and arbitral procedure impacted by economic sanctions. It also will explore the practical considerations faced by arbitrators, counsels and arbitral institutions when dealing with sanction-related arbitral proceedings

Lunch will be served.
