Call for Submissions-The Impact of Covid-19 on the World of Arbitration and Mediation-WAMR Special Issue

The World Arbitration and Mediation Review (WAMR) has launched a call for submissions of articles on “The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the world of arbitration and mediation”. Our Editorial Board is particularly interested in articles that focus on (1) the implementation and use of new technologies to replace face-to-face interactions between parties, witnesses, and neutrals; (2) the challenges/shortcomings associated with the use of these new technologies for arbitration and mediation proceedings; (3) the implementation and use of new technologies in the realm of arbitration and mediation student competitions; (4) the role of the state/government, arbitral institutions, professional groups and associations in the wake of the current global pandemic; (5) substantive issues that arise in the context of arbitrated or mediated cases during times of global turmoil (e.g. force majeure defenses, damages, etcetera), and (6) any other aspects of practical relevance regarding the impact of the current state of affairs on international dispute resolution.  Manuscripts will be accepted on a rolling basis until our issue is complete. Any specific queries, including WAMR’s submission guidelines should be directed to: wamr@fiu.edu.
