ArbMetaBlock2023 was a full day live event on 26 May 2023, in the city center of Ghent. The day offered insightful panel discussions and ample opportunity for networking.

For those who unfortunately could not join, we now offer these panel discussions on demand.


Five panels debated the impact of these technologies on the fundamentals of arbitration and explored how arbitration practitioners and arbitration institutions have to adjust to stay relevant.

  • Blockchain: what is it and (why) should the arbitration community care?
  • Metaverse: what is it and (why) should the arbitration community care?
  • Bringing down the house: How a new architecture (may) affect the fundamentals of arbitration
  • A role and place for lawyers: Is the legal market prepared for this new dispute resolution constellation?
  • Arbitration institutions in an era of decentralized spaces: on the cutting edge (or falling off)?

Furthermore, UNCITRAL presented its insights and work in the area of blockchain and arbitration.
