Is arbitration seated in your jurisdiction confidential? Is a duty of confidentiality found in the arbitration legislation?
 
Turkey
TCIA is silent regarding the confidentially of the arbitration. However, in Turkey it is recognized that the arbitration shall carry out confidential. All Parties involved in arbitration no matter in which kind (witnesses, experts, counsels etc.), are under the duty of confidentiality. Since there is a gap in law, It is advisable to add confidentiality clause in the agreement between the parties.
