Asian Arbitration Discourse:

International conference

 

University of Bergamo, Italy

18-19 September 2014

  

 

This conference is part of a project on Asian Arbitration Law which is being conducted at the University of Bergamo in collaboration with a team of the City University of Hong Kong (led by prof. Vijay Bhatia). Asian Arbitration is analysed both from a juridical point of view and in a linguistic-textual perspective. In particular, the project analyses the main norms, practices and documents used in arbitration in the Asian countries taken into consideration and compares them with the discursive practices employed in Italy and in other Western countries.

 

A plenary lecture will be delivered by Prof. Vijay Bhatia, President of Asia-Pacific LSP and Professional Communication Association
