2017年1月20日, the SCC hosted the symposium Arbitrating for Peace - a high-level discussion focusing on successful peaceful dispute resolution. The starting point of the symposium was the success of commonly agreed principles of disputes resolution known as international arbitration, and the power of shared objectives for the greater good. 这本书, 也被称为“和平仲裁”, was officially released during the centennial symposium and tells how arbitration has made a difference throughout history.
The United Nations has been a strong driving force in carving out the fundamentals of international arbitration. The New York Convention adopted by the UN General Assembly in 1958, safeguarding the enforcement of international arbitral awards, was early on described by members of the international community as “a constructive step towards facilitating international trade, and ultimately towards higher standards of living and so towards general peace and prosperity”.

这本书 Arbitrating for Peace was officially released during the centennial symposium. It places arbitration in a wider historical context, thereby making the subject accessible beyond the narrow circle of specialists without losing its legal relevance. The idea and concept of the book was initiated by the SCC, and it is published by Wolters Kluwer.
诺贝尔和平奖得主, and Secretary-General of the United Nations between 1997 and 2006, 安南, 在前言中写道:
“Peaceful resolution of disputes rarely makes the headlines. The use of the rule of law in pursuit of peace often takes place quietly, 远离聚光灯. The heroes involved; the men and women who make substantial contributions and advance peace in their capacities as brave political leaders, engaged legal specialists and wise adjudicators of integrity, receive little praise in international media. Their success remains relatively unknown.”
这本书 contributes to a continued dynamic development of dispute resolution in complicated or sensitive geopolitical contexts, and demonstrates how arbitration has and can continue to play an important role for international relations. Each chapter is devoted to different international landmark arbitration cases – primarily state-to-state but also including commercial disputes with geopolitical dimensions – and represents how arbitration has resolved disputes in cases regarding for example potential escalation of armed conflict, 投资者关系, 征用外国公司, 环境问题, 以及移民的获取和保护, 和更多的.
