The involvement of States and state entities in international business and trade, and therefore in international arbitration, has increased in the last decades. Such involvement gives rise to a number of both procedural and substantive issues which will be the subject of the 4th International Arbitration Forum, with the participation of leading international and Greek arbitration practitioners.

The forum, with general theme “States and State Entities in International Arbitration” will take place on the 19th of October 2023 at the Divani Caravel Hotel during the Athens Arbitration Days.
