About Swedish Arbitration Portal
The Swedish Arbitration Portal provides free access to English translations of Swedish court decisions on arbitration issues. The Portal contains decisions from all instances of the Swedish courts on issues related to both international and domestic arbitrations. The case database is updated regularly as new translations of court decisions are available.
The Swedish Arbitration Portal is facilitated by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce (the SCC). The project’s mission is to increase transparency in arbitration by making Swedish case law more accessible to the international community. The unofficial English case translations are provided by the SCC, with the assistance of Swedish arbitration practitioners. The Portal can be accessed through the SCC’s website, www.sccinstitute.com.
