A must-read for anybody interested in international arbitration!


Based on consent, a successful arbitration supposes a harmonious cooperation between parties, arbitrators, and other actors of the proceedings, including arbitral institutions.  However, many factors can negatively affect the arbitration procedure.


Dossier IX “Players’ Interaction in International Arbitration” compiles the outcome of the 2011 Annual Conference of the Institute of World Business Law.  It discusses the means to ensure that arbitration remains a real alternative to state justice: efficient, harmonious and at the same time respectful of the parties’ rights.  Thus, it evokes the duties different actors of arbitration have towards others, the means that should be implemented to ensure a smooth functioning of the arbitral tribunal, the challenges arbitral institutions have to cope with and more.


Written by some of today’s leading experts in the field of arbitration, the contributions in this Dossier tackle these issues from the points of view of all parties involved in an arbitration procedure: arbitrators, corporate lawyers and arbitral institutions.
