Legal systems in the Caribbean still reflect those of the original European host countries. However, current commercial practice pays no respect to historic boundaries. Inevitably, disputes will arise. The use of arbitration as a method of settling commercial disputes in the Caribbean is gaining ground. Arbitration as an alternative to our over-stressed court system has the potential to result in the speedy, economic and equitable settlement of commercial disputes.

In this layman's guide, Stoppi addresses the tremendous and urgent need for a basic understanding of the process of alternative dispute settlement in the Caribbean. He draws together the various practical and, to a lesser extent, legal aspects of the regional laws, procedures and rules of arbitration and its offshoots: adjudication, mediation and conciliation.

Stoppi also takes a comparative look at the different but analogous practices of alternative dispute resolution entrenched in the legal and commercial environments in Europe and the United States. This book will be of practical use to all people seeking to enhance their understanding of the process of arbitration in the Caribbean.
