Professor Janet Walker CM will join a distinguished panel at this year’s ICCA to discuss “The Sociology of Arbitration”.

About the panel
This panel will invite ICCA participants to step outside the box, and consider sociological perspectives on the field of international arbitration. That arbitration is such a “field”, with its own actors, institutions, routines and rituals (of which the ICCA Congress is one), now is difficult to dispute. The question is what arbitration practitioners can learn from a dialogue with sociology, and how this can enhance the community’s efforts to ensure that arbitration fulfils its purpose optimally. To explore this perspective, the panel will feature a keynote by a leading sociologist, who will offer a bird’s eye view of international arbitration, as perceived by a sociologist. This will be followed by comments from two actors in the arbitration field.

Moderator: Eleonora Coelho, arbitrator and founding partner of Eleonora Coelho Advaoados.
Speakers: Florian Grisel, Associate Professor at the Oxford Centre for Socio-Legal Studies (CSLS), Malcolm Langford, Professor of Public Law, University of Oslo and Director of the Centre on Experiential Legal Learning (CELL), and Professor Janet Walker CM.
