Welcome to GAR’s guide to regional arbitration

Why a guide to less well-known institutions? It’s a good question. After all, it’s not like there’s mass dissatisfaction with the existing, older arbitral institutions, or an appetite for experimentation among global corporations when it comes to their disputes. So why put together a book that largely ignores them in favour of less sure-fire options? One simple reason: those options exist. And if they exist you can’t ignore them, because, inevitably, some will be suggested. And some, as the Hong Kong International Arbitration Center (HKIAC), the Singapore International Arbitration Centre (SIAC) and others show, will become players. And new ones will – at least in the near term – continue to come along.

White List: Asia

If regional arbitration has a birthplace, it is Asia. It was the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre’s rise in popularity that proved the concept: if you give users a good local provider, they will come. Of course, there’s more to it than that – many stars must align for an arbitral centre to flourish. But the HKIAC showed it could happen – that those stars could align and a regional arbitration provider could prosper.
