Hamburg International Arbitration Days 2023

The Bucerius Center for International Dispute Resolution (CIDR) had the opportunity to welcome excellent speakers and guests from all over the globe for several events.

Luther Dispute Resolution Lecture

Within the Luther Dispute Resolution Lecture on 27 March, we had the pleasure to have Professor Claus Kreß, from the University of Cologne, speaking of the Question of Reparation in Russia’s Aggression Against Ukraine for over 120 guests.

Professor Claus Kreß used his large expertise in the field to explore different views on the clarification of the legal basis for reparation, the definition of the latter’s scope and the discussion of how best to implement reparation in practice.



Bucerius HIAD Conference

On the following day, 28 March, we hosted in cooperation with CAM-CCBC, Hamburg Arbitration Circle (HAC), the Rechtsstandort Hamburg and Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek the traditional Bucerius HIAD Conference. Our excelent speakers from different jurisdictions around the globe debated on the topic of Arbitration with State-Parties and shared their experience from both academic and legal backgrounds.

The discussions involved topics such as immunity, enforcement, curruption and more salient issues. The Conference was follwed by a reception at Taylor Wessing. Later we had a very pleasant evening at the Speicherstadt and enjoyed a four-course menu within our Networking Dinner.



Pre-Vis Conference

Finally, on 31 March, the Pre-Vis Conference took place at the University of Vienna on the topic "CISG: 40 (+3) Years and Still Going Strong?". The Conferece preceded the 30th Vis Moot, which reunited in Vienna over 3.000 people and students from over 90 countries.

We thank our speakers and guests for the insightful and enriching academic, practical and cultural exchange, and are looking forward to seeing you all again next year.

The HIAD 2024 will take place on 18-20 March 2024 – so please save the date!
