The American Society of International Law (ASIL), Columbia Law School, and the Columbia Global Center–Amman hosted a three-day conference entitled “International Legal Dialogue – Middle East North Africa.” Organized in cooperation with the University of Jordan Law School, the American Red Cross, and the Bahrain Chamber for Dispute Resolution (BCDR-AAA), the conference took place at the Columbia University Global Center in Amman, Jordan from December 14 to December 15, 2015.

On December 14, 2015, Nassib G. Ziadé, BCDR-AAA’s CEO chaired the morning sessions with George A. Bermann, Director of the Center for International Commercial and Investment Arbitration and Professor of EU Law at Columbia Law School. The sessions focused on “Arbitration in the Arab World” and included panels on the “Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards in the Arab World” and “The Effect of the Political Uprising in the Arab World on International Arbitration”.

CRCICA Director was among the speakers in the first morning session. He addressed the question of whether a foreign arbitral award is enforceable through means other than the New York Convention, with special emphasis on the conflicting applicable treaties (the New York and the Riyadh Conventions) as well as the possible conflict of applicable national statutes governing the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards.
