Enforcement, Setting Aside and Related Treaty Claims: A View From Europe

ICC Conference Banner Arbitration ADR

 

This Conference, which marks the 100th anniversary of the ICC, is a “must attend” for arbitration practitioners and more generally dispute resolution professionals, who want to keep up to date with the latest developments and increasing challenges when it comes to enforcement and setting aside of arbitral awards.

 

With a highly interactive format and dynamic presentations from real thought leaders in arbitration, this premier event of its kind in Switzerland will bring together panelists (arbitration counsel, arbitrators, and academics) from all over Europe to discuss recent trends and decisions in relation to the setting aside and enforcement of arbitral awards, and the circumstances under which the violation of the New York Convention could amount to a violation of investment protection standards. You can view the full programme here.

Nein zur kontraproduktiven Selbstbestimmungsinitiative

ICC Switzerland ist entschieden gegen die Selbstbestimmungsinitiative. Sie ist kontraproduktiv für alle Unternehmen, welche aus der Schweiz international aktiv sind und entscheidend zum Wohlstand unseres Landes beitragen. Es ist wichtig, dass am 25. November ein wuchtiges NEIN zur SBI in die Urnen gelegt wird.

 

Bekanntlich verdienen wir Schweizerinnen und Schweizer unseren Wohlstand auch im Ausland, und zwar nicht nur durch Exporte, sondern auch durch Investitionen. ICC Switzerland bildet als Schweizer Nationalkomitee der Internationalen Handelskammer (ICC) die Brücke für unsere Unternehmen zur globalen Wirtschaft. ICC ist in über 90 Ländern vertreten und tritt seit 100 Jahren für gute internationale Rahmenbedingungen zu Gunsten aller ein.

 

Gerade im Investitionsschutz sind Vertrauen, Verlässlichkeit und transparente, berechenbare Rahmenbedingungen von grosser Bedeutung. Der Investitionsschutz steht jedoch unter Druck. Die Selbstbestimmungsinitiative bringt zusätzlich Unsicherheit. Die Schweiz kann von Partnerländern nicht erwarten, dass sie einen Investitionsschutz nach internationalen Regeln akzeptieren, wenn sie gleichzeitig signalisiert, dass sie dem nationalen Recht stets den (fast) bedingungslosen Vorrang einräumt. Dieser negative Effekt tritt bereits weit vor einer allfälligen Kündigung eines Abkommens ein. Das Fundament für den Handel und den Schutz von Investitionen wird damit durch Treibsand ersetzt.

Treibsand für den Investitionsschutz

Die Initianten der Selbstbestimmungsinitiative behaupten, dass die Wirtschaft von der Vorlage nicht negativ betroffen sei. Dies kann nicht ohne Widerspruch bleiben. In meiner Tätigkeit für Swiss Re und die Internationale Handelskammer (ICC) erlebe ich tagtäglich, wie wichtig stabile und berechenbare Beziehungen für eine funktionierende internationale Wirtschaft sind.
