The Beyond Default Approach to Human Rights in International Arbitration: Presenting the Hague Rules on Business & Human Rights Arbitration


ASIL's Private International Law Interest Groups invites you to a virtual co-sponsored event with the ABA International Law Section’s International Courts and Judicial Affairs Committee. The event will feature Professor Katerina M. Yiannibas of Columbia Law School. The Hague Rules on Business and Human Rights Arbitration "aimed to create an international private judicial dispute resolution avenue available to parties involved in business and human rights issues as claimants and defendants, thereby contributing to filling the judicial remedy gap in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights." Issued in December 2019, the Hague Rules offer a new forum for resolving disputes in the business and human rights arena. In this highly interactive presentation, Professor Yiannibas, who has been pivotally involved in the drafting of the Hague Rules, will share several insights on the Hague Rules and the impact it will have on business and human rights. We are thrilled to co-host this event with NYIAC and the ABA International Law Section’s Arbitration Committee.
