Washington D.C. is the epicenter of investment arbitration.

Washington D.C. Arbitration Week (WAW) is being launched to provide an organic D.C. forum in international arbitration for its legal community and the international and foreign community connected to it. WAW will further advance the analysis and discussion of developments reflected in arbitral awards, treaties and international instruments at the forefront of international arbitration.

The first edition of WAW is being held virtually by video conference during a five-day period from November 30th to December 4th, 2020. As set out in its brochure, this edition of WAW consists of 15 sessions and networking events connecting the members of Washington D.C.’s international arbitration community to the rest of the world.

These panels will follow a dynamic format and foster an open discussion about the future of international arbitration. They will shed light on new arbitration techniques, focus on developments and evolving interpretations and views, and discuss the best practices for international arbitration in the new virtual reality.

WAW 2020 will be a showcase of international arbitration in Washington, DC. On behalf of all of their supporters, panel speakers and moderators, WAW welcomes newcomers and experienced practitioners alike to the city and arbitration community.
