Bucerius Law School, McGill University Montreal, New York University, University of Vienna and UNCITRAL join forces to celebrate 40 years of CISG – just prior to the opening of the 27th Willem C. Vis International Commercial Arbitration Moot in Vienna.
As the CISG turns 40, it is worth looking into what issues are still generating discussions, since taking stock of its open issues is a prerequisite to be able to shape the CISG‘s future.
This conference will tackle some of the most important issues, from the CISG‘s applicability in arbitration to issues of scope and more substantive issues. The conference will also analyse the CISG‘s relationship with other instruments, including instruments of so-called soft law.
