The IAC currently has a panel of 24 independent, highly qualified international arbitrators and mediators, drawn from a variety of jurisdictions. The IAC seeks to empower regional commerce by increasing confidence in the administration and accessibility of dispute resolution throughout the Astana International Financial Centre, Kazakhstan, the Eurasia region, and globally.
