About International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR)
The International Centre for Dispute Resolution (ICDR) was established
in 1996, as a separate division of the American Arbitration Association
(AAA), to further enhance the delivery of conflict resolution around the
globe. The ICDR has established cooperative agreements with arbitral
institutions in countries worldwide, enabling users to conduct
multi-country conflict resolution proceedings virtually anywhere in the
world under a set of rules consistently applied by the ICDR, rather than
under numerous sets of national rules applied by unfamiliar foreign
court systems. The ICDR administers cases that deal with complex
international controversies arising in transactions involving joint
ventures, partnerships, sales transactions, franchising, patent, and
other investment and trade. In addition, it administers cases pursuant
to UNCITRAL Rules, CAMCA Rules, or IACAC Rules, and it can also be
called upon to act as an appointing authority. The ICDR maintains a
culturally diverse worldwide panel of over 400 impartial, independent
arbitrators and mediators to hear and resolve international cases. They
are knowledgeable about trans-national business practices and typically
offer specific industry expertise focused on international commercial
transactions. The Centre maintains an office in New York, and a European
office in Dublin.
