ICC supports the Equal Representation in Arbitration (ERA) Pledge

The ICC International Court of Arbitration was among the first organisations to endorse the Pledge before it was even launched on May 18, since it signed the Pledge on 8 May 2016. The ICC has participated in this initiative since Sylvia Noury started it in April last year and was represented by the author, who is also a member of the Pledge Steering Committee.
