Exclusive teaser premiere: Quiet Triumph - How Arbitration Changed the World

The documentary film QUIET TRIUMPH: How Arbitration Changed the World, will premiere during SCC's Centennial celebrations on 19 January 2017. Watch the teaser below.

For many centuries, international arbitration has played an important role in enabling peaceful and constructive relationships among states. By enabling common rules and peaceful dispute resolution, arbitration has been an important building block in the growth of international trade and economic development. As expressed by Alexander Komarov in the film:

“The world is a small village. And that’s why we have to be helpful to each other. The idea is
that everybody on the globe could have equal opportunities; and not only opportunities, but
real benefits from international trade.”

It is time that this international success story is brought into the light.

The documentary film QUIET TRIUMPH tells the story of international arbitration, with events in Sweden in the foreground. It features interviews with central players who experienced the ground-breaking developments first hand, and whose skills and integrity contributed to making the world a better place.

“Professor Tang Houzhi, Judge Howard Holtzmann and Professor Sergei Lebedev; they were
giants, they were very important for the development of international arbitration. And they were
also very important for the development of Sweden as a forum for international arbitration”
,
Ulf Franke comments in one of the interviews featured in the film.

The film will premiere during the SCC Centennial celebrations on 19 January 2017 in Stockholm.  Registration for the SCC Centennial opens 3 October 2016.
