Meg Kinnear, secretary general of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID), discusses her background, the importance of mentors and female arbitrators, and updates to the ICSID/UNCITRAL draft code of conduct. London-based counsel Suzie Savage is our host.

This is the second time in 12 months that Meg Kinnear has taken part in Reed Smith podcasts highlighting and explaining important topics in international arbitration. In July 2020, Meg was a member of a roundtable discussion, hosted by Reed Smith, on the draft code of conduct for adjudicators in investor-state settlements. More details on that event can be found at
