Section 1: The Issue of Corruption in International Arbitration

Corruption is a phenomenon occurring not only in the context of handling with public funds. It plays a negative role also for private-law relationships. National legislations regularly sanction corruption by both criminal and private law remedies. At the international level, several instruments fighting against corruption have been adopted (e.g. Convention on Combating Bribery of Foreign Public Officials in International Business Transactions (1997); Civil Law Convention on Corruption (1999), Criminal Law Convention on Corruption (1999); UN Convention against Corruption (2003). Thus, there is no doubt that the fight against corruption is in the public interest.

The issue of corruption is currently discussed also in the area of international arbitration. Therefore, we have decide to devote this year’s conference to this topic. We welcome papers dealing with various aspects of corruption within the context of both international commercial and investment arbitration. The papers can deal with the issue of arbitrability, validity of arbitration agreements, rights and duties of arbitrators (e.g. duty to find corruptive behaviour, notification duty), burden of proof, issue of applicable law including the application of criminal law provisions by arbitrators, impact on annulment or recognition and enforcement of arbitral awards. We will also accept papers dealing the international instruments against corruption, national criminal regulations against corruption as well as national private-law remedies against corruption.
