Toolkit for Arbitrators cover page

A Russian version of Corruption and Money Laundering in International Arbitration: A Toolkit for Arbitrators has just been published. You can download the English and Russian versions 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, will present the Russian translation at the RAA-CEA Conference: Arbitration and Corruption of the Russian Arbitration Association on 6 February 2020.

Many thanks to Elena Fedorova of Bonifassi Avocats (Paris) for the translation and Vladimir Khvalei of Baker McKenzie (Moscow) for the polishing.
