In the spring of 2013 within the framework of the Project “Competitiveness of Arbitration” cofinanced by the European Union within the European Social Fund began work on the preparation of proposals for changes to the Polish arbitration law. The research team consisted of following persons: Dr hab. Łukasz Błaszczak, Dr hab. Rafał Sikorski, Dr Maciej Zachariasiewicz, Dr Karol Zawiślak, Dr hab. Grzegorz Żmij, led by Dr Beata Gessel-Kalinowska vel Kalisz. The work was divided into three stages. The first stage involved the analysis of the current legal status, the results of which was published in the “Polish Arbitration Law”.
In the second stage, de lege ferenda remarks reported in the “Polish arbitration law” was the main subject of the Conference about Polish arbitration law held at the Royal Castle in Warsaw on 18 September, 2014. In parallel, all these issues have been presented to a wide audience in the form of a survey published on the website of the Lewiatan Court of Arbitration and arranged among the participants of the Conference.
Abovementioned analyzes and discussions were used by the research team to write White Book of Arbitration which is intended to summarize the proposals to amend the Code of Civil Procedure reported in doctrine and practice and the submission of one comprehensive set of proposal of amendments.
On 20 November 2014 this publication was forwarded to the Minister Mariusz Haładyj and to the Minister Wojciech Węgrzyn as well as to the media.
