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.
