New frontiers at the ICCA Congress 2018
Evolution and adaptation in international arbitration was the overall theme of the just finished ICCA Congress 2018 in Sydney. On the final morning of the congress, SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson took part in the plenary session: New frontiers: Potential of Arbitration Involving New Types of Claims.

This plenary aimed to explore potential new types of claims that may lie ahead in international arbitration, and how arbitration in the future might become a forum for resolving disputes under new international and national laws, and new international policy. Emerging norms on corruption, human rights, health and safety, and environmental and climate change commitments, will also likely have an impact on international arbitration practice.
