cordially invite you to a BBL on
Arbitration of Government Contracts in
Latin America: Peru, the Example to Follow?
Arbitration in Latin America is often a subject of passionate debates, particularly when it comes to foreign direct investment. However, Latin America is also a continent where some countries have established arbitration as a common dispute resolution mechanism, particularly for government contracts. Peru is one of those countries, and for more than 15 years, contractors, suppliers, and government agencies have chosen arbitration rather than a Court to solve their contractual disputes.
Mr. Franz Kundmüller, recognized Latin American expert in Arbitration, will present the history of arbitration of government contracts in Peru. He will describe the results that recourse to arbitration was able to achieve for both the government and the private sector. Finally, he will also depict the challenges of arbitration in complex governance contexts.
