Mission and Vision Statement

The Philippine Institute of Arbitrators (PIArb) is the voice for private dispute resolution in the Philippines.

 

PIArb envisions the use of arbitration and other modes of dispute resolution other than resolution by a court as the primary means of resolving conflict in the Philippines. 

 

Towards this vision, PIArb will:


1.  Be the private sector’s leading advocate of private dispute resolution;

2.  Be the benchmark provider of awareness, education, and certification programs on private dispute resolution;

3.  Facilitate research in support of its role as advocate and educator; and

4.  Serve as the primary private sector forum on private dispute resolution policy and practice.

PIArb and CIArb in the Philippines

The Philippine Institute of Arbitrators (PIArb) is the voice for private dispute resolution in the Philippines.


While both PIArb and CIArb are independent of each other, both complement each other in the Philippines in view of their similar visions and objectives. 

From CIArb’s perspective, it is in a position to provide PIArb with: 

• Guidance and support through the provision of international faculty as well as mentoring and certifying of local faculty; 
• Developed content, in the form of tried and tested course material that is continually updated; and 
• An international network of conferences and events throughout the year and a vibrant and active international stakeholder community. 

On PIArb’s part, it facilitates CIArb’s reach in the Philippines by providing CIArb with: 

• A local legal presence with an established juridical personality; 
• A local champion of the CIArb vision; and 
• A facility for the full entry of the Philippines into the international private dispute resolution community in general, and more Filipino members in CIArb in particular.
