The High Standards Of The Court Of Arbitration For Art

Thursday, 27th July 2018

"On June 7, 2018, the Court of Arbitration for Art (CAA), with headquarters in The Hague (Netherlands), officially entered in business, with the purpose to solve art-related conflicts through ADR.

While this is not the first attempt to use ADR to solve Art disputes, the CAA seems to aim to approach the matter with a new twist, focusing on arbitration rather than other ADR tools, such as mediation and conciliation.

Earlier successful experiments to combine Art and ADR consisted, for examples, in (i) the partnership between the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the International Council of Museums (ICOM), that created a not-for-profit mediation service and (ii) the mediation and conciliation services offered by UNESCO to its Member States, through its Intergovernmental Committee for Promoting the Return of Cultural Property (ICPRCP). This list also includes "ADR Art", which is the branch of the Milan Chamber of Commerce devoted to the resolution through mediation of conflicts raised in the Art world (see page).

Given the above, the Court of Arbitration for Art appears to be one of the first institutions that are exclusively dedicated to the solution of Art disputes and which is also equipped with the necessary resources and skills to solve art-related disputes through arbitration, which is an ADR system that the abovementioned institutions do not provide.

In addition, within the CAA all arbitrators must be exclusively selected from a pool of professionals (the "Pool") approved by the Netherlands Arbitration Institute (NAI) - which co-founded the CAA in partnership with the non-profit association Authentication in Art (AIA)."
