As parties face higher risks of insolvency as well as trade and travel restrictions because of the pandemic, tribunals and claimants are increasingly likely to encounter issues related to a non-participating respondent in international arbitrations. The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators’ Guidelines on Party Non-Participation (the “CIArb Guidelines”) defines non-participation as when a party either does not take any steps in arbitration or initially participated but ceases to participate later in the process.
