Balkan Arbitration Conference 2021

Join us on 5 - 7 July 2021 for the Balkan Arbitration Conference 2021, the arbitration conference for the Balkan region.

Arbitration, as a form of dispute resolution, has a great deal to offer the Balkan region. We hope that the Conference will encourage discussion and debate across the region on this subject, helping experiences to be shared across national boundaries and legal systems. In doing so, we hope to encourage the use of arbitration in the region as a way of resolving disputes.

If you have experience of (or merely an interest in) arbitration, whether as a client, lawyer or other professional, or you want to find out how it could help to resolve disputes more effectively, our programme of world-class speakers and panellists from within and outside the region will be of interest to you.

This year, sadly, the Conference must be online, due to COVID-19. One benefit of that, however, is that we are able to make participation this year free of charge. In future years, we plan to organise the Conference as an in-person event in the region, to which we look forward to welcoming you.

We look forward to seeing you at this year's Conference. Please register, for free, using the links on this page.
