Genre: Law

Post-Hearing Issues in International Arbitration includes articles that originally appeared in the Stockholm Arbitration Report (SAR) and the Stockholm International Arbitration Review (SIAR). All of the articles have been extensively revised and updated for this publication. The authors and articles selected include a wide range of perspectives and include judges, arbitrators, seasoned practitioners and well-respected scholars that can account for the first-hand practice-orientated developments of international arbitration. The book is set out in three parts. In Part I, the authors discuss three significant issues related to the conclusion of an international arbitral award: arbitrator deliberations, punitive damages, and post-award interest. Part II attempts to navigate the interesting and often daunting review processes of an international arbitration award. Part III considers a blend of international arbitration recognition and enforcement issues, including jurisdictional hurdles, public policy concerns, primary defences, and the practical requirements of a successful claim.
