    Arbitration and Territorial Disputes – Closing Keynote by Prof Jure Vidmar

    Professor Jure Vidmar will deliver the closing keynote address of the 2024 London Summer Arbitration School on Friday, 21 June 2024 at 17:30 (London time). Those who are not attending the summer school in person as faculty members or participants can join the event online by registering free of charge here. Professor Anna Petrig and Professor Yarik Kryvoi will co-moderate this event.

    This keynote will consider the patterns, strengths and pitfalls of arbitrating territorial disputes. It will focus on two main issues: how international arbitration is used as a method of peaceful settlement of territorial disputes; and how arbitral tribunals address territorial disputes when settling other disputes (e.g. in investment arbitration).

    In the context of the use of arbitration as a means of peaceful settlement of territorial disputes, particular attention will be paid to jurisdiction of arbitral tribunals, participation of states and non-states in the proceedings, the choice of law and the problem of enforcement.  

    The lecture will also address those situations where a territorial dispute appears in arbitral proceedings incidentally and/or as an ancillary question. It will discuss how arbitral tribunals ensure (or not) that they stay within the boundaries of their jurisdiction; how they apply the rules of public international law, and what can be done in arbitration where these rules are inconclusive.

    Prof Dr Jure Vidmar is Chair of Public International Law at Maastricht University in the Netherlands. He is also a Member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague, Member of the OSCE Court of Conciliation and Arbitration in Geneva, and is appointed by the European Commission to the List of Candidates Suitable for Appointment as Arbitrators and Trade and Sustainable Development Experts in Bilateral Disputes under Trade Agreements with Third Countries. He has also served as Judge ad hoc of the European Court of Human Rights.
