60 Years of the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards: Key Issues and Future Challenges

University Loyola Andalucia. Seville, 5th and 6th April 2018

On 10 June 1958, a diplomatic conference convened by the United Nations in New York concluded the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. The so called New York Convention is one of the most successful treaties in the area of commercial law, currently adhered to by 157 States, including the major trading nations. It has served as a model for many subsequent international legislative texts on arbitration.

This International Conference marks its 60th anniversary in 2018, and this milestone offers an opportunity to review the experience with the Convention, to take stock of current issues in the field and to consider future challenges.
