The key industry event hosted in the home of international arbitration connecting a diverse and dynamic professional community.

The Paris Arbitration Week is an institution organizing a yearly week of events aimed at connecting, whether in person or virtually, the worldwide community of arbitration practitioners, boosting rich academic debate and promoting Paris as the eternal home of international arbitration.

The Paris Arbitration Week is located (one could say ‘seated’) in Paris, the historical anchorage of international arbitration, headquarters of the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) and of Universities, where international arbitration has been taught for over 60 years, in the context of France’s pro-arbitration and avant-gardist stance towards arbitration. The Paris Arbitration Week is, however, a truly international and dynamic event, involving practitioners from all over the world, who attend this very special week to build an international network of colleagues, experts, professors and students, to listen to eminent speakers, or to recruit the brilliant young minds that will shape the future of international arbitration or to simply reunite with friends. With over 26,000 registrations and 143 events, the 2023 edition brought together an excess of 10,000 arbitration practitioners who attended passionate doctrinal debates, enlightened practical workshops and exchanged ideas during relaxing social and networking events.

The Paris Arbitration Week is the result of its members’ and the community’s passion and commitment. The Paris Arbitration Week’s ambition is to remain the leading arbitration hub of the future, showcasing diversity, sustainability, social responsability and innovation as its core values – for this reason, its partners are required to commit to these same principles and respect them in the organisation of their events.

PAW is a non-profit, apolitical association that connects arbitration and ADR practitioners worldwide by organizing a series of events and exchanges taking place annually during Paris Arbitration Week.  We are proud to promote international arbitration and ADR as peaceful means of dispute resolution that ensure access to justice and uphold the rule of law.
