International Arbitration: Cases and Materials 2nd ed
Published: February 2015
Publisher: Kluwer Law International
Country of Publication: The Netherlands
The new edition of this practical and authoritative casebook is based on the highly acclaimed International Commercial Arbitration: Commentary and Materials. It will provide you with a fully international approach to the constitutional structure, law, practice and policy of international arbitration.
The author, the distinguished and worldrenowned arbitrator Gary Born, examines all forms of international arbitration, including international commercial disputes and investor-state and inter-state (or state-to-state) disputes. He focuses in particular on the New York Convention, the UNCITRAL Model Law and leading
institutional arbitration rules (including the UNCITRAL Arbitration Rules).
He considers the leading international arbitration conventions, and examines contemporary national arbitration legislation from an international perspective.
The casebook begins with a general introduction and then divides into three main sections: international arbitration agreements, arbitral proceedings, and arbitral awards. Each section focuses on international standards and practices, rather than on a single national legal system.
