The Singapore Convention Week has been a busy one for the Singapore International Dispute Resolution Academy (SIDRA), with multiple events held over the last few days.

We were joined by friends from the United Kingdom, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore and Samoa, and had a very fruitful time discussing themes arising from the Survey.

📌 On 30 and 31 August 2023, SIDRA co-organised two closed-door workshops in conjunction with the Ministry of Law, SingaporeUNCITRAL: United Nations Commission on International Trade Law and International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) on government capacity building and investor-State dispute settlement.
