Close to midsummer, at the most exciting time of the year, when the sun does not go to sleep for more than a blink of an eye, the AIJA International Arbitration Commission warmly invites you to Stockholm, one of the world’s traditional hubs for international arbitration and the home city of the Arbitration Institute of the SCC.
We all know that the arbitration ends with the rendering of a final and binding award. But is it really over at that moment? Often, the skills and experience of counsel, arbitrators, and arbitral institutions will be tested once again after the award has been rendered.  The famous Yukos saga is just an example of the very broad and manifold issues that may arise after the rendering of the final award. If you are curious to discuss these issues with your peers and get useful insights, on what strategies to adopt to successfully enforce an award, to set aside an award, or to avoid contradictory rulings, please join us at the 9th AIJA Annual Arbitration Conference in Stockholm.
  • During our conference we will address and discuss, also from a comparative perspective, the following issues:
  • What is the role of arbitrators and arbitral institutions in ensuring enforceability of an arbitral award? Should arbitrators consider international public policy of enforcement states?
  • What are the strategic choices, tricks, and keys to a successful enforcement of an arbitral award?
  • Correction, revision, interpretation, and additional arbitral awards – what are the requirements and what are the differences?
  • Functus officio: What are the tribunal’s duties, obligations and liabilities after the award has been rendered?
  • What are the grounds for annulment of arbitral awards in different jurisdictions?
  • Can and should state courts enforce arbitral awards set aside at the place of arbitration?
  • What does the principle of res iudicata stand for? What are the risks and benefits of parallel proceedings and contradictory awards?
  • And many more topics…

You will be surprised to learn about the variety of interesting issues that may arise on the horizon after the final award has been rendered! In addition to the scientific value of this conference, Stockholm offers interesting perspectives on a cultural and inspiring social program. Consistent to the longest days of the year, the AIJA nights promise to be the longest and intense nights ever!

The conference will be kicked off by a welcome reception in the evening on 15 June 2017, and the scientific program will start in the morning on 16 June 2017.

The OC is looking forward to welcoming you in Stockholm!
