At a time when international arbitration is facing increasing challenges, this collection of 34 articles provides informed commentary by leading arbitration specialists on some of today’s most pressing subjects, including procedural efficiency, arbitrator independence and investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS). The book also contains thought-provoking articles on other discrete topics, as varied as arbitral appeal procedures, responsibilities of institutions, dissenting opinions, remission of awards, use of arbitration in disputes arising from mass disasters, and party representation by foreign lawyers, as well as studies on regional developments. These are all matters on which the authors – arbitrators, counsel and institutional leaders from around the world – are well-qualified to write, drawing on first-hand knowledge and experience, as well as exhaustive research, to offer analyses that are highly pertinent to the future of international arbitration. The book’s dedicatee, John Beechey, was President of the ICC International Court of Arbitration between 2009 and 2015, during which time he spearheaded many reforms likewise aimed at enhancing the efficiency, integrity and effectiveness of the arbitration process.
