Toolkit for Arbitrators cover page

A French version of Corruption and Money Laundering in International Arbitration: A Toolkit for Arbitrators has just been published. You can download the toolkit in English, Russian and French (Corruption et blanchiment d’argent dans l’arbitrage international – Boîte à outils pour les arbitres) here.

The University of Basel's Arbitration and Crime Competence Centre created the toolkit in early 2019 as guidance for arbitrators confronted with corruption and money laundering issues in international arbitration cases. It draws on the centre's January 2019 workshop on Corruption and Money Laundering in International Arbitration.

A follow-up one-day conference in January 2020 gathered over 80 arbitrators, lawyers and experts from around the world to look specifically at the legal consequences when corruption and money laundering issues arise in international arbitration cases.

Mark Pieth, who leads the Arbitration and Crime Competence Centre jointly with Kathrin Betz, is President of the Board of the Basel Institute. 

Many thanks to Elena Fedorova of Bonifassi Avocats in Paris, France, who translated the toolkit with the assistance of Lee Augier.
