This book expounds the theory of international arbitration law. It explains in easily accessible terms all the fundamentals of arbitration, from separability of the arbitration agreement to competence-competence over procedural autonomy, finality of the award, and many other concepts. It does so with a focus on international arbitration law and jurisprudence in Switzerland, a global leader in the field. With a broader reach than a commentary of Chapter 12 of the Swiss Private International Law Act, the discussion contains numerous references to comparative law and its developments in addition to an extensive review of the practice of international tribunals. Written by two well-known specialists - Professor Kaufmann-Kohler being one of the leading arbitrators worldwide and Professor Rigozzi one of the foremost experts in sports arbitration - the work reflects many years of experience in managing arbitral proceedings involving commercial, investment, and sports disputes. This expertise is the basis for the solutions proposed to resolve the many practical issues that may arise in the course of an arbitration. It also informs the discussion of the arbitration rules addressed in the book, from the ICC Arbitration Rules to the Swiss Rules of International Arbitration, the CAS Code, and the UNCITRAL Rules. While the book covers commercial and sports arbitrations primarily, it also applies to investment arbitrations conducted under rules other than the ICSID framework.

"The focus of Arbitration Law and Practice in Central and Eastern Europe is to provide an understanding of the involvement of state authority in arbitrations and offer practical ideas on arbitration procedures for countries in this region. Adopting a questionnaire format devised by the editors, issues are investigated from both the arbitrator's and the counsel's perspectives and important tactical issues are discussed. It is inevitable, however, that the reader may occasionally be disappointed to find an unanswered question. The editors, authors and contributors ask for patience as the reader tries to find specific answers to questions which would not have been posed ten years ago. Case law is generally sparse in these countries, legal reforms are recent, and therefore the legal writing is limited and does not cover the entire array of questions that may arise. The book is an indispensable reference and guide for arbitrators and party representatives who are engaged in arbitrations in the region."--Publisher's website.

Genre: International commercial arbitration
For international business transactions, international arbitration is the dispute resolution mechanism of choice. While not without room for improvement, international commercial arbitration offers distinct advantages over litigating in the public courts of one's counterparty, including a neutral forum, control over the selection of arbitrators, and a final, enforceable and transportable award. Other advantages include relative confidentiality and the opportunity to tailor the proceedings to the needs of the parties. The book International Arbitration: Commercial and Investment Treaty Law and Practice by Elliot Polebaum explores the different facets and types of international arbitration agreements, including the consequences of what the parties have provided or failed to provide. The book also discusses the different stages of an arbitration proceeding, including initiation of the case, constitution of the tribunal, interim measures, discovery, pre-hearing submissions, the hearing on the merits, awards, and annulment and enforcement proceedings. The legal framework in which all of this transpires--international conventions, national arbitration laws, arbitration rules, and the business agreement between the parties--is also considered. Additionally, the book takes up the subject of investment treaty arbitration in detail. Foreign investors have a strong preference to resolve their investment disputes with States in a neutral arbitral forum rather than in the State's own courts. This book addresses the legal framework within which these investment treaty arbitrations take place, including discussion of the terms of investment treaties, and the jurisdiction and procedure of investment treaty arbitrations under the auspices of the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes in particular. The book also explores the substantive grounds of investors' treaty claims against States, States' defenses and counterclaims, remedies, and annulment and enforcement of investment awards.
