Why such a Centre?

Many large contracts include arbitration clauses. Increasingly, both in commercial and in investment arbitration, arbitrators are confronted with allegations of illegal acts like fraud, corruption, money laundering or bid rigging etc. Parties and arbitrators are typically in a delicate situation as they lack the support of law enforcement agencies and coercive measures. The allegations of illegality can be a powerful weapon if substantiated. However, they are also used as an easy way to skirt obligations. Dealing with illegality poses problems of a substantive nature. But the rules of evidence also frequently require expertise. The Competence Centre Arbitration and Crime combines such expertise.
