2018 International Arbitration Survey: The Evolution of International Arbitration

Queen Mary University of London and White and Case logos

We are once again pleased to be partnered with White & Case LLP to launch our 2018 International Arbitration Survey: ‘The Evolution of International Arbitration’. This is the eighth major empirical International Arbitration survey conducted by the School of International Arbitration at Queen Mary University of London.

The Survey considers the evolution of international arbitration as a system: its past, present and future. The Survey aims to research the sentiment of the international arbitration community as a whole, and not just the views of any particular group within it. All stakeholders therefore are invited to share their perspectives, regardless of whether their experience with international arbitration is based on activities as a private practitioner, in-house counsel, arbitrator, academic, or through work for an arbitral institution.

Take the survey

  • Complete the 2018 International Arbitration Survey online by accessing the following link. We appreciate that not all questions are relevant to all respondents. Please answer as many questions as you can, and feel free to leave blank those you cannot. The questionnaire should take approximately 20 minutes to complete.
  • If you choose to complete the PDF version of the 2018 survey, you can download it here. Please send your completed questionnaire to Adrian Hodis.

The closing date for responses to this questionnaire is 17 December 2017. Results will be published in Spring 2018.

We are grateful for your participation and look forward to the survey’s outcomes. Since the results will benefit from a wide pool of respondents, please feel free to forward this questionnaire to any other potentially interested respondents.


In addition to the questionnaire phase of the survey, we will seek to conduct individual interviews with a selection of willing respondents from October to December 2017. If you would prefer solely to provide an interview rather than complete the questionnaire first, please contact Adrian Hodis.


Your participation in this questionnaire will be kept fully confidential. Your name and the name of your organisation will not appear on any materials connected with the survey. The information gathered by the questionnaire will be stored securely by Queen Mary University of London and used only for the purposes of the current survey and any subsequent surveys.
