SIDRA is pleased to hold a webinar on the Singapore Convention on Mediation and investor-state disputes, which will focus on the prospects and application of mediation in investor-state disputes, and the enforcement of such international mediated settlement agreements. This webinar will be held on 12 September 2020, which is also the day the Singapore Convention on Mediation comes into force. We are pleased to have Lucy Reed (Arbitration Chambers), Zannis Mavrogordato (Twenty Essex), and Frauke Nitschke (ICSID) join us as panellists, with Nadja Alexander and Darius Chan moderating.
The panellists will take a deep dive into applying the provisions of the Singapore Convention on Mediation to investor-state disputes by discussing the mechanics of how the Convention relates to investor-state disputes, and draw from their respective experiences in their roles as counsel representing clients, counsel at arbitral institutions and arbitrator. The panellists will also discuss the implications of the opt-out provisions in the Singapore Convention on Mediation in relation to state parties, and the exceptions to enforcement and ensuing implications under the Convention.
The webinar will take place on 12 September 2020 (Saturday) from 8pm to 915pm (Singapore Time), 8am to 9.15am (New York Time). We hope that you will be able to join us!
