The first panel will discuss the recent trends of their respective national courts in relation to the setting aside and enforcement of arbitral awards, and the increasing tendency of some state courts to interfere in the arbitration process.

The second panel will cover issues such as whether an arbitral award or the right to arbitrate itself are protected assets under investment treaties, and under what circumstances can the violation of the New York Convention amount to a violation of investment protection standards.
