The Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon: Keynote Address delivered at the SIAC Congress 2018


At the SIAC Congress 2018 held in Singapore on 17 May 2018, The Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, Supreme Court of Singapore, gave an insightful keynote speech on the special role and responsibility of arbitral institutions in charting the future of international arbitration.

The growth of institutional arbitration is very much a feature of international arbitration's "golden age". By providing administrative and logistical support and pre-established rules and procedures, arbitral institutions have paved the way for its widespread adoption. Over time, arbitral institutions have morphed from private service providers, concerned only with commercial matters, to quasi-public bodies involved in the development, organisation, and promotion of international arbitration.

In his address, Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon discussed some of the challenges that come with this expanded role, and set out his thoughts on the ways in which arbitral institutions such as the SIAC can and must take the lead in securing the future of the industry in the face of the challenges that lie ahead.
