About this book:
The Powers and Duties of an Arbitrator focuses on powers and duties of arbitrators in arbitration proceedings, a topic which has been widely discussed in recent years, but remains understudied. Among prominent international arbitrators, Dr. Pierre A. Karrer stands out as exemplifying and advocating the responsible exercise of powers to fulfil the duties of an arbitrator. At a time when arbitration is under ever greater scrutiny and subject to ever more searching and sometimes hostile enquiries, Dr. Karrer’s work provides an example of how good the arbitral process can be when it is in the hands of a master. This book adds to the substantial contributions resulting from Dr. Karrer’s career. More than thirty leading arbitration practitioners and academics worldwide who have been a part of, and have been influenced by, Dr. Karrer’s extensive professional career have contributed to this book celebrating Dr. Karrer’s career on the occasion of his seventy-fifth birthday.

- What is the nature of the arbitrators’ relationship with arbitral institutions?
