SCC Centennial: 100 years of dispute resolution

SAVE THE DATE: On 19 and 20 January 2017, SCC will celebrate its 100-year anniversary in Stockholm. These dates will be dedicated to honoring the SCC's long history and heritage, as well as celebrating the SCC today, with its commitment in promoting the development of international arbitration.


The celebrations will start in the afternoon of Thursday 19 January, with the SCC inviting to a reception and premiere of a film at the Rigoletto theatre in downtown Stockholm.

The film is a documentary about the development of international arbitration as a means for efficient and peaceful dispute resolution, with a particular focus on the role played by Sweden and SCC.

After the film screening, the evening will continue with a gala dinner at the Stockholm Waterfront.

On Friday 20 January, the SCC is hosting a half-day symposium at Musikaliska in Stockholm, on the topic “Arbitrating for Peace”. The event will also mark the launch of a book on the same topic (see the Table of Content here). The program will end after lunch.

The SCC Centennial Program celebrations will be attended by the Swedish Minister of Justice, Mr. Morgan Johansson, the Mayor of Stockholm, Ms. Karin Wanngård, and the former Secretary General of the League of the Arab States Dr. Nabil Elaraby. Many more speakers will be added over the next few months.
