The UNCITRAL National Coordination Committee for Australia (UNCCA) is now able to send a few observers through the international organisation of lawyers’ association LAWASIA, to UNCITRAL Working Group Sessions.
This call is for expressions of interest to attend the upcoming 67th session of Working Group II on Arbitration and Conciliation / Dispute Settlement. The session, at this stage, is tentatively scheduled for 2-6 October 2017, and will be held in Vienna, Austria.

Work will focus on legislative development on the enforcement of conciliated settlements in two possible forms; as agreed at the end of the 66th session, “the Working Group would continue to prepare both a model legislative text complementing the Model Law on Conciliation, and a convention, on enforcement of international commercial settlement agreements resulting from conciliation.” (More information on the current work of WGII is available at http://www.uncitral.org/uncitral/en/commission/working_groups/2Arbitration.html)
Academics, researchers, and/or professionals whose current work is connected to that of the Working Group, and who could, accordingly, benefit from observing these sessions, are invited to register their interest in attending with:
Dr Dalma Demeter, Chair of the Expert Advisory Committee for Working Group II at UNCCA.
Please send a current CV and a short paragraph explaining why you would like to attend, and how attending the sessions would contribute to your work, to firstname.lastname@example.org
by 15 June 2017.
Please note that there are only limited places available, and neither UNCCA, not LAWASIA are in the position of providing funding.
