Professor Renato Nazzini, Director of the Centre of Construction Law and Dispute Resolution at The Dickson Poon School of Law, has been appointed to the ICC Task Force on Addressing Corruption Issues in International Arbitration, and to the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR.
The ICC Task Force will study how national laws, international law, and arbitral tribunals address corruption issues and report to the ICC Commission on Arbitration and ADR.
Professor Nazzini has developed specific knowledge and expertise in arbitration involving complex public policy issues through academic work and experience as counsel and arbitrator in construction arbitration.
I am delighted to have joined this important ICC Task Force which will provide practical and robust insights into how corruption issues are dealt with in international arbitration– Professor Renato Nazzini
Speaking on the appointment, Professor Nazzini said, "Corruption issues are, sadly, frequent international arbitration, including construction arbitration. They raise difficult questions, such as whether the arbitrators have the power or even the duty to raise such issues ex officio or how to deal with parallel arbitration and criminal proceedings. This work undertaken by this ICC Task Force is timely and much needed."
