Current Issues in the CISG and Arbitration

Edited by: Ingeborg Schwenzer, Yesim M Atamer, Petra Butler

This book is a compilation of proceedings of two conferences on the United Nations Convention on the Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG). The first conference was held at the Istanbul Bilgi University (Turkey) and the second conference on the occasion of the Arbitrators and Mediators Institute of New Zealand meeting in Wellington, New Zealand. Both conferences aimed to provide a better understanding of the CISG, as well as the importance of international dispute resolution. The book allows all readers who are new to the CISG to gain an understanding of the CISG, including its relationship to arbitration. Contributions cover, inter alia, the applicability of the CISG, interpretation and gap filling under the CISG, and the delivery of goods under the CISG. Those who are more familiar with the CISG will find some thought provoking contributions that explore some of the pertinent CISG issues, like interest claims under the CISG, the calculation of damages, and specific performance.
