Later that day, the Modern International Studies (MIS) will host a seminar on ”The Role of Arbitration in Inter-State Disputes” where the SCC will talk about the SCC’s role in investment disputes.
More information about the two events will follow.
Modern International Studies (MIS) is a private organization founded in Dubai in 2011. Since 2016 it is also active in Tehran. The organization spreads knowledge concerning different aspects of International Law, primarily in the Middle East and North Africa.
Now available: SCC Arbitration Rules in Italian
The SCC Arbitration Rules are available in Swedish, English, Chinese, Russian, German, Spanish and Arabic. The SCC is proud to announce that an Italian translation of the rules has just been published.
The majority of the cases administered under the SCC Rules are international, and the SCC Rules are therefore available in more languages. In addition to the just completed Italian translation of the rules, the SCC is currently working on a translation in Persian.
The SCC would like to thank Andrea Carlevaris, partner at BonelliErede in Milan, and Teodora Marconi, trainee at BonelliErede, also in Milan, for preparing and reviewing the Italian translation of the Rules.

Cybersecurity in international arbitration and mediation
The conference will be hosted by ICSID with the SCC, ECS and PCA as co-organizers. ICSID and SCC are the world’s two largest institutes for investment disputes. SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson will participate.
