The Center, together with other institutions, will host a conference around the submissions for the 2nd edition of a book entitled “Conflict of laws in international arbitration” to be co-edited by Professor Franco Ferrari, the Center’s Director, and Stefan Kröll (Bucerius Law School, Hamburg). The book will tackle the issues in relation to which a conflict of laws analysis becomes relevant and will include about 20 papers on topics ranging from the law applicable to privilege, to res iudicata, to the law applicable to the merits and post-award issues. The talks to be given at the conference, which will take place on 23 March 2018, are a means of introducing the audience to the book project. The event is graciously hosted by the University of Vienna just prior to the commencement of the 25th annual Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot.
