MISSION STATEMENT: Arbitrator Intelligence (AI) aims to promote transparency, fairness, and accountability in the selection of international arbitrators, and to facilitate increased diversity in arbitrator appointments. 

The primary means through which Arbitrator Intelligence (AI) seeks to fulfill its mission is through development and implementation of the Arbitrator Intelligence Questionnaire (AIQ).

Traditionally, the most valuable information about arbitrators has been available only through person-to-person, ad hoc telephone inquiries. The result is an uneven playing field: those who do not have large networks of relationships lack access to crucial information about arbitrators. Lack of information also reduces appointments of newer arbitrators from diverse backgrounds because less information is available about them.

By submitting responses to the AIQ — when it is launched in June 2017 — you can help AI develop a database of information that will make the market for information about arbitrators function more fairly and effectively for all.

For more information about the AIQ, see http://www.arbitratorintelligence.org/aiq-frequently-asked-questions/.
