Yearbook on International Arbitration

Volume IV

Edited by: Marianne Roth, Michael Geistlinger

This yearbook series takes up recent trends in international arbitration, be it in the context of commercial disputes, investor-state conflicts, or sport controversies, and leads them in scholarly debate. Dedicated to Pierre A. Karrer, this volume comprises up-to-date contributions by arbitration experts from all over the world, offering unique insights into their work. Emphasis is placed on indispensable standards in arbitration, with contributions covering the role of consent, the demand for control, rules of emergency relief, and the prevention of unconscious psychological influences in the decision making. Further articles focus on the practical issues of documentary evidence and document production, as well as on the question of e-discovery. The book also highlights topics in investment arbitration, such as the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law's Rules on Transparency, the possible effects of awards on parallel or subsequent proceedings, and the International Center for Settlement of Investment Disputes annulment system as compared to set-aside proceedings before state courts. Current discussions in sports arbitration, as well as informative reviews on a selection of recent releases and training options, complete the volume.
