The School of International Arbitration at Queen Mary University of
London, with the support of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, is conducting
the second International Arbitration Survey into the Attitudes of
Corporations towards International Arbitration. The 2007 SIA/PwC
International Arbitration Survey focuses on the Attitudes and Practices of
Corporations towards Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards,
Settlement and Value of Arbitral Awards and coincides with the
50th anniversary of the New York Convention. The Survey is conducted
by Prof. Loukas Mistelis, Director of the School of
The new Survey explores the experience and perceptions of corporations in order to obtain quantitative and qualitative data about recognition and enforcement world wide, as well as on the settlement process and whether arbitration is actually encouraging the settlement of disputes. The Survey will finally investigate the value of arbitral awards: whether the arbitral awards, as any other commodity, can be sold or exchanged by any means.
Another part of the Survey will deal with the experience and perception of Arbitration Institutions towards recognition, enforcement and value of arbitral awards, as well as on settlement.
The Survey will be conducted during a five-month period and comprises a quantitative (online questionnaire) phase in November 2007 – February 2008, followed by a qualitative one (interviews) in February - March 2008. The interviews are conducted by Prof. Loukas Mistelis, Crina Baltag and Stavros Brekoulakis, Lecturer in International Commercial Arbitration with the School of International Arbitration.
The questionnaire was finalized with the assistance of a Focus Group which included John Fellas, Paul Friedland, Matt Gearing, Paula Hodges, Daniel Kalderimis, Ed Kehoe, Simon Nesbitt, Guy Pendell, Robin Oldenstam, Javier Rubinstein, Kathleen Scanlon, Franz Schwarz, Audley Sheppard and Joe Tirado.
