The Quiet Triumph

The Quiet Triumph

The documentary The Quiet Triumph – How 仲裁 changed the world, a film portraying the role of arbitration in world affairs. The film premiered during the celebration of the SCC Centennial. Nearly 700 guests from around the world gathered at 斯德哥尔摩’s Rigoletto theatre to see the film.

The success of international arbitration is generally only understood by the actors working within it and now is the time to make an unknown story known. For many centuries, international arbitration has played an important role in enabling peaceful and constructive relationships among states. By enabling common rules and peaceful dispute resolution, arbitration has been an important building block in the growth of international trade and economic development. As expressed by Alexander Komarov in the film:

“The world is a small village. And that’s why we have to be helpful to each other. The idea is that everybody on the globe could have equal opportunities; and not only opportunities, but real benefits from international trade.”

The documentary film The Quite Triumph tells the story of international arbitration, with events in 瑞典 in the foreground. It features interviews with central players who experienced the ground-breaking developments first hand, and whose skills and integrity contributed to making the world a better place.

“教授essor 唐Houzhi, Judge Howard Holtzmann and 教授essor 谢尔盖·列别捷夫; they were giants, they were very important for the development of international arbitration. And they were also very important for the development of 瑞典 as a forum for international arbitration”, Ulf Franke comments in one of the interviews featured in the film.

In 2003, Carl XVI Gustaf, the King of 瑞典 presented the Royal Order of the Polar star to 教授essor 唐Houzhi, 教授essor Sergei N Lebedev, and Judge Howard M Holtzmann, in appreciation of his outstanding achievements in international arbitration. These events are portrayed in the film.
