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. 

Arbitrator Intelligence (AI) aims to be an international clearinghouse for information about arbitrators.  To that end, AI is currently working to develop information from three sources:

  • Aggregated web-based information;
  • Information from past awards by arbitrators; and
  • Information generated through Feedback Questionnaires completed at the end of arbitration cases.

Each of these sources contains information critical during the arbitrator selection process, but difficult, or in some cases impossible, to find, particularly for smaller parties and parties outside of the major arbitration hubs.

By making information from these sources more equally available, AI aims to promote a more fair, reliable, and efficient process for selecting arbitrators. Meanwhile, by providing a neutral clearinghouse of information about international arbitrators, AI will increase the visibility of newer arbitrators and accelerate their ability to establish international reputations. With more and more reliable information, parties can more readily assess newer arbitrators and effectively increase the diversity in the pool of arbitrators.

AI is a resource being built by the international arbitration community for the benefit of the international arbitration community. Our growing community includes members from more than 170 jurisdictions, who actively contribute ideas and information to help build Arbitrator Intelligence.
