Toby Landau KC of Duxton Hill Chambers to speak at the AIAC Evening Talk Series 2023 on “The New York Convention in a Fractured World – Can International Arbitration Survive the Resumption of History?

The 1958 New York Convention is one of the most widely signed treaties. At its heart is the belief that international commerce and international politics can be separated. In 1992, Francis Fukuyama declared the end of history and the triumph of liberal democracy as the final form of government for all nations.

In today’s fractured world, neither of those statements enjoy anything like universal support. Clash of civilisations is back on trend. With the current global trends of decoupling Chinese and US supply chains, friend sourcing and the return to fashion of putting ideology before commerce, can the New York    

Convention and international arbitration survive? What approach should Asia take?
