International Arbitration in Switzerland
An Introduction and Commentary on Articles 176-194 of the Swiss Private International Law Statute
Since 1st January 1989 Switzerland has a new International Arbitration Act, in the form of Chapter Twelve of the Federal Statute on Private International Law (PILS). In the German version of the `Basler Kommentar' on the PILS published in 1996, experienced Swiss arbitration practitioners gave a detailed commentary of the provisions on international arbitration.
This commentary is now available in an English translation based on drafts by Stephen V. Berti. The book contains a comprehensive, updated introduction to international arbitration by Marc Blessing, followed by the commentary of articles.
The work provides an in-depth analysis of the provisions of the Swiss International Arbitration Act, and explains how they became law and how they have been interpreted in practice during the first few years since they came into force. The book will be indispensable for all practitioners and academics interested in arbitration.
