NYIAC Evening Program | The Interpretation and Application of the New York Convention : Taking Stock of the Practice
Evening Program at the New York International Arbitration Center
Monday, Sept. 11, 2017, 5:30-8:30 p.m. (including cocktail reception)
In 2010, UNCITRAL requested the assistance of two experts, Professor Emmanuel Gaillard and Professor George Bermann, to prepare a Guide on the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, 1958 (New York). The Guide, which was presented to the Commission in July 2016, aims to promote the uniform and effective interpretation and application of the Convention with a view to limit the risk that State practice diverge from its spirit. It is supplemented by a freely accessible online platform – newyorkconvention1958.org – which includes over 1200 decisions from multiple common law and civil law jurisdictions implementing the Convention.
Following the presentation of the Guide, various speakers will discuss recent trends and case law on the application of the New York Convention. The event will be followed by a cocktail reception, kindly sponsored by Shearman & Sterling LLP.
