The main objective of the ICAAD Conference is to analyze arbitration in action by undertaking a legal, contextual and discourse-based analysis of data drawn from arbitration practice.
The purpose of this international conference is to:
- Bring together researchers and practitioners in language and the law from around the world to participate in a dialogue about Mediation and collaboration in the context of Arbitration and Practices in Asia
- Provide opportunities for collaboration between arbitration practitioners, judges, law professional and academics from various fields including Arbitration, Mediation, Litigation and professionals who are interested in enhancing cooperation between judges and lawyers and cultures.
Information on the venue, registration, hotels and social activities will be placed on the conference website soon.
Call for Papers:
In the present-day globalization of trade and commerce, International Arbitration is being regarded as an economical and effective alternative to litigation for settling commercial disputes. This alternative dispute resolution method, with conciliation and mediation, has become widely adopted for the settlement of domestic and international disputes in Asia. Indeed, international business exchanges between and with Asian countries have increased enormously over the last few years and even the recent economic recession has not slowed down this growth. As a natural consequence, this increase in business deals and contracts has brought about an increasing number of trade disputes that are being resolved through arbitration.
In order to explore the interrelations between discourses and practices in the field of arbitration in Asia, Centre for ASEAN Regionalism University of Malaya (CARUM) and Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration (KLRCA) will be hosting an International Conference on Arbitration discourse and practices which is open to scholars and practitioners from different disciplinary and professional backgrounds. The conference will investigate the extent to which the ‘integrity’ of arbitration principles typical of international commercial arbitration practice is maintained in various Asian contexts, focusing in particular on arbitration norms and practices as they are influenced by local juridical, cultural and linguistic factors from a number of different perspectives, such as legal, discourse analytical, as well as arbitration practice. The main objective of this international conference is thus to analyze arbitration in action by undertaking a legal, contextual and discourse-based a
nalysis of data drawn from arbitration practice. Arbitration practice, in this context, is viewed as a professional process which lies at different points on a professional and discursive continuum from mediation – arbitration – litigation, and which offers a range of critical moments and sites where law and language intersect, offering a range of interesting research foci.
This conference is organized in collaboration with a research project on Asian Arbitration Law / Discourse which is being conducted at the University of Bergamo (Italy) led by professors Mariacarla Giorgetti and Maurizio Gotti, together with professor Vijay Bhatia.
The organisers cordially invite papers for a 20 minute oral-presentation and another 10 minutes for questions and answers.
Colleagues planning to give a paper should submit a 300-word abstract of their proposal, specifying the title of the presentation, full name and institutional affiliation, and a postal and email address for correspondence to this email: ICAAD2015 at gmail.com
