Current Issues and Future Challenges in International Arbitration


The IBA has launched an e-book: Current Issues and Future Challenges in International Arbitration. The book examines the present state of international arbitration, looking at both established seats and those in emerging jurisdictions and assessing the relationship between the two: will newer seats threaten the position of those that are more established, or do they boost this growing area of practice?

The book also tackles some of the key issues currently facing international arbitration. It puts forward proposals for reform of investment treaty arbitration and considers the question of ethics and regulation.

Contributors represent the international arbitration community, and include Jan Paulson, Emmanuel Gaillard and IBA President David W Rivkin.
