About the ICC International Court of Arbitration Bulletin Supplement

The full Bulletin Supplement contains extracts from awards rendered between 2001 and 2009 in ICC cases where corruption was at issue with three accompanying articles.

The awards illustrate situations in which arbitral tribunals have or have not found evidence of corruption, the criteria on which such findings were based and the remedies applied. The articles provide commentary on these and other awards, discuss the use of circumstantial evidence in relation to corruption, and take stock of the international fight against this worldwide scourge.

Multilingual (predominantly English, plus French and Spanish). Articles and extracts from awards are published in their original language with summaries in English, French and Spanish.
