On 2 June 2021, PILnet held a webinar “Arbitration and Public Interest”. Latham & Watkins lawyers Fedor Belykh and Alexandra Samsonova spoke about how the arbitration system is structured in Russia and how arbitration can be used to protect public rather than commercial interests. The webinar, in which over 40 participants registered, was the first event of the PILnet project on the relationship between business and human rights in Russia. In the coming months, PILnet will organize a detailed online course on this topic.
