6th Basel Arbitration and Crime Conference: Updating the Toolkit
This 6th annual gathering of leading arbitrators, lawyers, forensics and academics at the University of Basel focused on how arbitrators can better address allegations of corruption or money laundering in relation to underlying disputes.
The panels explored evolutions in applicable law, evidence, legal consequences, enforcement and transnational public policy since the publication of the 2019 Toolkit for Arbitrators: Corruption and Money Laundering in International Arbitration. A special session looked at arbitration and art.
Based on the discussions, an updated Toolkit will be circulated among participants for comments.
The conference was organised by the Arbitration and Crime Competence Centre led by Professor Mark Pieth and Dr Kathrin Betz, with the support of the Basel Institute on Governance and the International Academy of Financial Crime Litigators. The organisers thank the sponsors BDO, Bonifassi Avocats and EY.
