The UNCITRAL Secretariat will hold an in-person discussion entitled “UNCITRAL's Dispute Resolution in the Digital Economy Initiative” during the Paris Arbitration Week. The event was hosted by Science Po Law School. The UNCITRAL project on the stocktaking of developments in dispute resolution in the digital economy (DRDE) was launched in 2021, conferring on the secretariat a mandate to monitor the changing landscape of dispute resolution in the digital economy by compiling, analysing and sharing relevant information with a view to laying the groundwork for possible updates to UNCITRAL texts and development of new ones if necessary.  The project gives particular attention to the disruptive aspects of digitalisation in dispute resolution, in particular those with respect to due process and fairness, but also focuses on the enabling aspects of technology as far as its impact on the cost and duration of procedures is concerned. In line with its mandate, the UNCITRAL secretariat is organising discussions to seek inputs from different parts of the world to ensure the comprehensiveness of its work. The PAW discussion will be hosted at Sciences Po Law School, complementing a world tour covering Tokyo, New York, and Guatemala City.
