Tackling Corruption in Arbitration

  • Paris, 10 March 2014

The 2013 Supplement of the ICC International Court of Arbitration Bulletin offers rare insight into how arbitrators deal with corruption.


This Supplement contains extracts from awards rendered between 2001 and 2009 in ICC cases where corruption was at issue. They illustrate situations in which arbitral tribunals have or have not found evidence of corruption, the criteria on which such findings were based and the remedies applied. Three accompanying articles provide commentary on these and other awards, discuss the use of circumstantial evidence in relation to corruption, and take stock of the international fight against this worldwide scourge.
