The event will be divided in two panels.

Professor Celso Lafer, Antônio Augusto Cançado Trindade, professor and judge of the International Court of Justice, and Ambassador Carlos Henrique Cardim were also invited to be part of this panel.
The moderator of the second panel will be the head of the United Nations Division, Minister Eugênio Vargas Garcia, and the theme will be “CPA e Brasil: perspectivas futuras”. PCA’s secretary-general and professors Eduardo Grebler and Nádia de Araújo will also be part of this panel.
In the afternoon, PCA will offer a workshop on international arbitrage limited to 40 participants.
The workshop goal is to give the participants a practical view on the general principles of arbitrage, on the different types of international arbitrage and on the Court’s work. The course will be directed to public servants and professionals with legal qualifications. If there still are spots available, students might enroll.
By the end of the course, the participants will have acquired technical expertise to analyze common procedural questions that may arise on an international arbitral process. The course will be taught in Portuguese.
