Arbitration for Peace sneak peek: Kofi Annan and Jade R. Harry
The recently published book Arbitrating for Peace is an overview of historical landmark arbitration cases, authored by some the world's most eminent arbitration scholars and professionals. The SCC can now provide a sneak preview of the foreword by Kofi Annan, as well as of the chapter about the Brčko Arbitration, written by R. Jade Harry.
The Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and Secretary-General of the United Nations between 1997 and 2006, Kofi Annan, writes in the foreword:
"The international community has used arbitration, mediation and other methods of peaceful dispute resolution for centuries. Over this time, nations have constructively worked together to develop a common international system which today allow states to settle most of their disputes peacefully. This is a huge achievement in human history."
In December 2014, SCC launched a competition where law students and young practitioners were invited to submit papers to be included as a chapter in the book. Ms. Jade R. Harry’s paper on the Brčko Arbitration was ultimately chosen for publication.
