The Paris Arbitration Week is an institution organizing a yearly week of events aimed at connecting, whether in person or virtually, the worldwide community of arbitration practitioners, boosting rich academic debate and promoting Paris as the eternal home of international arbitration.
The ambition of the PAW is to remain the principal arbitration centre of the future, by highlighting the diversity, sustainability, social responsibility and innovation as fundamental values.
