Fellow Kluwer arbitration blogger, Duarte Henriques, recently started a Facebook page dedicated to discussing topical issues in international arbitration. The page regularly features “memes” all aspects of the practice.

Below are a few. When international arbitration meets social media, no one is spared.

  1. Thanks much Michael for this, but I ought to “share the laurels” (as we say here…) with someone else, who has been a great inspiration (whereas my contribution is mostly perspiration).
    Anyway, my older kids have seen some memes and said: “Dad, stop it, you don’t know how to do it! You have to link your idea to the movie in question…”
    But that’s precisely my point: most of those ideas do happen in real life and sound like taken out from those Hollywood productions…

    1. Not sure the link will work but it is https://www.facebook.com/groups/418845801659200/
      It is a closed group to keep out the spammers, but pretty much open to anyone. (Since they let me in!)

      In case you or others are not aware, there are a number of useful international arbitration pages in Facebook and in Linkedin where these topics, including the post above, are discussed. For example, Alexandre Hory maintains a Facebook page on international arbitration with over 10,000 members, an impressive number for our relatively small international practice area. Most of these pages can be located by searching for the terms international arbitration.
