On the 3rd of June 2014, Dr. Martin Svatos, Ph.D. gave an interactive workshop on arbitration and ADR at the Faculty of Law of the Masaryk University in Brno, (Czech Republic).
The main topics that was discussed was the impartiality and independence of the arbitrators, especially the correct application of the IBA Guidelines on Conflict of Interest in International Arbitration. The actual issues of mediation and other ADR were, however, also addressed.
