Farouk has recently joined the Editorial Board of the ICC Dispute Resolution Bulletin. His role will involve overseeing and finalising the content and identifying legal developments for inclusion in the publication.

The Bulletin contains extracts from Awards rendered by ICC arbitral tribunals, articles providing comment and analysis on law and practice, ICC reference documents including the annual Statistical Report on ICC arbitration, reports of the ICC Commission on arbitration and ADR offering guidelines and discussion on procedural and substantive issues, Secretariat notes elucidating ICC rules and practices, and news of interest to users of ICC dispute resolution services.

Founded in 1990, the Bulletin is produced under the auspices of the ICC International Court of Arbitration and appears biannually. From 1990 to 2010 it was published in two separate English and French editions. It is now published in a single, multilingual edition, predominantly in English but also including material in French and Spanish.
