Finances in International Arbitration focuses on various aspects of finances of arbitration, such as evaluating the costs of disputes, arbitral institution costs, financing of disputes, recovery of costs of arbitration and other related financial matters. Costs of arbitration have always been a main concern in international arbitration. It is a topic most often discussed and analysed. In spite of the recent developments in third-party funding regulations as well as other mechanisms made available to users of arbitration to reduce costs, the topic remains a key focus for users of arbitration.
