The Practice of Arbitration

Essays in Honour of Hans van Houtte

Edited by: Patrick Wautelet, Thalia Kruger, Govert Coppens

This book offers a series of commentaries on noteworthy arbitration awards and court decisions on arbitration. Influential authors with proven arbitration experience share their insights on celebrated and less well-known cases, including both commercial and investment arbitration, drawn from various countries and various arbitration institutions. The collection of essays celebrates the work and scholarship of Hans Van Houtte, who has been a professor of international commercial arbitration at the University of Leuven for more than 20 years. In addition to his widely praised contribution to the theory of arbitration, Professor Van Houtte has built a long career in the practice of arbitration, presiding over a vast array of arbitration tribunals and holding appointments to international tribunals, most recently as the Iran-US Claims Tribunal. This festschrift will prove essential for all arbitration practitioners and will be of great interest also to academics and research students with an interest in international arbitration.
