SCC to host the launch of Gunnar Lagergren’s biography
The book, Skiljedomens ädla konst – internationell domare för handel, fred och mänskliga rättigheter is written by Anders Johnson and published by Ekerlids Förlag in cooperation with the SCC. SCC hosts the book launch at its premises on 16 May 2017.
Mr Lagergren was a prominent international arbitrator who had chaired some of the arbitration that has shaped our history. He passed away on 28 December 2008 at the age of 96.
SCC Chairperson Kaj Hobér and SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson will be at the event at the SCC’s premises. In a memoriam written after Mr Lagergren’s death, Mr Hobér pointed out among others that Mr Lagergren had chaired arbitration that had ended military hostilities between countries.
SCC Secretary General Annette Magnusson and SCC Chairman Kaj Hober will be at Columbia Law School in New York to show The Quiet Triumph: How Arbitration Changed the World.
The movie will be shown as part of a conference organized by the American Arbitration Association, International Center for Dispute Resolution and Columbia Law School on 24 May 2017. A discussion about the movie will follow the film presentation. Since its premiere in Stockholm in January 2017, The Quiet Triumph has been on world tour in Moscow and Beijing.
The conference, on the other hand, will address the challenges, opportunities and expectations on international arbitration. The discussion will cover empirical data relating to arbitration, a topic which has not often been addressed in arbitration-themed seminars. Susan D. Franck, Professor of Law of Washington and Lee University School of Law who has published several articles on this topic will be among the speakers. In addition, the Honorable Justice of Court of Appeal of Ontario Kathryn N. Feldman will address the future of arbitration.
