Netherlands Arbitration Institute

Established as a foundation in 1949, the Netherlands Arbitration Institute (Stichting Nederlands Arbitrage Instituut; “NAI”) operates on a non-profit basis and performs its duties entirely independently and impartially. The NAI aims to promote a number of different types of alternative dispute resolution: arbitration, binding advice and mediation, in particular by providing trade and industry with soundly regulated arbitral, binding advice and mediation procedures. The NAI is the largest general arbitration institute in the Netherlands, a solid and innovative organisation with by far the most experience with and knowledge of different forms of ADR. The NAI is located in the centre of Rotterdam, the vivacious trading centre of the Netherlands with one of the largest ports of the world. The legal relation between the arbitrators and the parties, between the arbitrators and the NAI and between the NAI and the parties is governed by Dutch law. read more >

NAI and Young NAI event - postponement - NEW DATE


On April 14, the NAI and Young NAI symposium is scheduled to take place about the upcoming revised NAI Arbitration Rules. Unfortunately, we will postpone this event to September 2021.


We had very much hoped to have speakers physically present for this event to optimize the synergies and discussion. That is not possible due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions. We therefore propose to set a new date for this event in September 2021. More information will follow shortly.


In case of questions, feel free to contact us.
