Registration open: Welcome to the SCC Centennial 19-20 January
The online registration is now open for the SCC Centennial taking place in Stockholm 19-20 January 2017. The event will highlight the importance of international arbitration through the lens of SCC history, and point the way for a future with continued efficient and peaceful dispute resolution at global level.
For centuries, international arbitration has enabled constructive cross-border relationships. It has fostered peaceful resolution of international disputes, and it is an important building block in the growth of international trade and economic development.
“The SCC Centennial is an opportunity to showcase the importance of international arbitration, and its accomplishments”, says Annette Magnusson, SCC Secretary General. “By using the experience from Stockholm, we are highlighting the success of commonly agreed principles for dispute resolution, also in times of geopolitical tension or in contexts of strong cultural differences.”
The celebration starts Thursday 19 January 2017 with the premiere of the documentary film Quiet Triumph – How arbitration changed the world, which tells the story of international arbitration, with events in Sweden in the foreground. The film premiere at the downtown cinema Rigoletto, followed by a grand gala dinner.
Friday 20 January hosts a half-day symposium on the topic Arbitrating for Peace. This also marks the launch of the book on the same theme.
The SCC centennial 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, among many others.
