PCA Peace Palace Centenary Seminar

PCA Peace Palace Centenary Seminar

Welcome to the PCA Peace Palace Centenary Seminar

The PCA will hold a seminar on October 11, 2013 to commemorate the centenary of the Peace Palace. The Peace Palace was constructed, through the generous donation of Andrew Carnegie, in order to house the Permanent Court of Arbitration. Formally inaugurated on August 28, 1913, and maintained ever since by the Carnegie Foundation, the Peace Palace has come to be recognized globally as an icon of international peace and justice. The PCA Seminar is part of a series of commemorative events, organized by the Carnegie Foundation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the municipality of The Hague, taking place in The Hague throughout the months of August to October 2013.

The theme of the seminar will reflect one of the PCA's most significant areas of activity. Under the title "Confronting Global Challenges: From Gunboat Diplomacy to Investor-State Arbitration" a panel composed of leading arbitrators will consider current challenges facing those who participate in, and those who are affected by, the ever-growing sphere of investor-state arbitration.

The seminar will take place in the afternoon of October 11, 2013. It will be preceded by a luncheon reception for participants, as well as an optional programme of activities for those already present in The Hague in the morning.

Please note that the deadline is closed, no more places are available. Attendance of the seminar is by personal invitation only__.
