Dispute Management and Law for International Project

Belt and Road infrastructure projects usually involve with at least one of the key players (e.g. contractor, consultants or employers) working outside its country of origin. As these multi-national participants come from different political, legal, economic, and cultural backgrounds, disputes in these projects involve more than just rights and interests of the parties. If disputes are not managed properly, they tend to cause project delays and destroy business relationships.

Since globalization lead us to harmonization and convergence with international practice, international projects call for common practices and procedures and have led to something approaching a ’global law’.


In this workshop, speakers will introduce the theoretical and practical knowledge of dispute resolution (DR) to equip participants to face the challenge of “disputology” problems in the Belt and Road projects. The following topics will be covered:

  • Institutional framework to resolve disputes and handle certain construction risks
  • The Harmonisation of international arbitration
  • Application of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) and ‘multi-tiered” DR mechanisms in international projects
