Funds are being raised to support the newly-established ICCA-Guillermo Aguilar-Alvarez Memorial Prize. ICCA will award the Prize biennially during its Congress to the individual under 40 who has written the best published work on international arbitration, conciliation, or other forms of dispute settlement over the past two years, as selected by an independent Advisory Board. The Prize will cover the recipient’s costs of attending the ICCA Congress, plus a small honorarium.
Guillermo passed away in July 2017. He was a brilliant and beloved teacher, mentor, and colleague to a generation of arbitration practitioners and scholars across three continents. By recognizing the talents of young practitioners and encouraging insightful, creative, and principled scholarship in our field, we believe this Prize to be a fitting way to remember and honour Guillermo’s remarkable legacy.
By awarding the Prize, ICCA Foundation, Inc. seeks to further promote the use, and deepen the understanding, of arbitration, conciliation and other forms of international dispute resolution.
As a supporter of the ICCA-Guillermo Aguilar-Alvarez Memorial Prize, you can opt to make (1) a once-off donation; or (2) a regular donation over a period of time (daily, weekly, monthly or yearly).
Pledges to the Prize have already reached US$60,000, with a further US$60,000 targeted to help the Prize exist in perpetuity. While any amount is welcome, we encourage those who knew Guillermo and are looking for a more long-lasting way to honour his legacy to become a Patron of the Prize. Donors will be recognized as Patrons by ICCA (and associated with the Prize accordingly) when they commit to donate at least US$5,000, either once-off, or in a series of regular donations, e.g., a US$100 monthly commitment over 5 years.
